DF 95 summer series Round 6 14th August 2022

A very hot day, and we have had a few of them lately, Kevin was OOD and got some help from some of the skippers to get things set up. On arrival it was a northerly and the forecast was for it to veer into the North East, Not sure what happened because not only was it a light airs day it was all over the place,

Mick C 46 took the first bullet, closely followed by Jen H 69, and in third was Mick Cooper 39, the course was one long beat and run followed by a short beat to the finish, again numbers were down for all sorts of reasons but still we had 9 skippers, Jen H 69 took the win in the next race from Mick C 46 and keeping up his consistency was Mick Cooper 39 getting another 3rd position, Alan Newman 438 then took complete control even though his jib luff looked extremely loose and won by a country mile seemingly keeping what breeze there was all the way round the course, In race 4 Jen H 69 took the win from Mick Cooper 39 with the other Mick in third. Peter C 110 was having a good day in the light and after some adjustment on Colin T 431 by Jen ,he seemed to be going much better, Mike W 76 with his hand still heavily plastered was struggling a little, and Kevin with the OOD on his mind was not at his best, Peter Helen, who ultimately works out the results for us, had one or two decent results, but could do with some one to one work with one of the experienced skippers, and I am sure that will help overall.

Well done everyone 8 races reflected the lack of wind , Many congratulations to Jen H 69 for the win on countback. and thanks to Pete for the swift results turnround.
