DF 65 Winter series round two 27th November 2022

Pleasant day light winds and warm , 10 skippers raced could have been 11 but hey ho, bit of a delay due to no wind at all and finally got going on the south bank , Pete W 65 took the first bullet with Gordon B 23 taking 2nd and Jen H 69 taking third, the fleet then moved to the East bank as the breeze could not make its mind up, and was real fluky, Jen won race two and Dave R 180 trying to get into his stride after a couple weeks away, took second , and the much improved Peter Webster 26 taking third spot. races 3 and 4 saw Pete W 65 take the the wins and was clearly into his stride getting a second and two more bullets, to seal the day. Jen H 69 retired with a faulty rudder, but Gordon Bennett had the best day of all getting 3rd place on the day, Alan N 232 had a completely off day and will be very disappointed, and it was great to see Alan B sailing his original DF 65 with no A + rig. We welcomed a visitor Steve I believe and hope to see more of him in the future, 2 or 3 skippers missing for this round , and the wind was lighter than forecast , Very well done to Pete W 65 for his win which will surely now take him to the top of the cumulative series but there is a fair way to go in this exciting series, Well done everybody for a great mornings sailing.

Pete Walters winner of round two
