DF 65 Winter series round 6 and final round 19th March 2023

Wow Spring has sprung , what a fantastic day of racing for the final round of the DF 65 Winter series, wind a little on the light side at times but a perfect windward leeward course set by Alan E and Ed W , The sun was shining , we had visitors , one hopefully will add to the DF 95 fleet , welcome Steve. Mick C got down early as the buoys were all over the lake due to the recent gales .and laid them out on the South bank . Mick Cooper had repaired the tripod for the start box and then went on to do some repaires on a Widget for the other Mick.

Mick C 46 had some bad luck before racing started when his bridle snapped , so he missed the first race , which was won in fine style by the much improved Alan E 890, with Dave R 180 and Jen H 69 second and third respectively, In race two after a hurried repair Mick C 46 , took the win with ease from the chasing pack, The boat sporting some 4 year old Icarex sails from Cat sails .

Race 3 and Mick was again out front but Gordon B 23 and Dave R 180 decided to go right at the gate 1st time round and due to a massive shift ended up well in front with a lead that was uncatchable , fair play. New boy Richard J 699 was getting to grips with his new boat and towards the end was sailing really well, Ed W 31 was also having a much better day.

All in all a great days racing, and many congrats to Mick C 46, who at times seemed on fire with speed in excess. Well done to all fro helping get the gear away and taking turns on the start line. So end of the Winter series and we can look forward to the Summer series that will start in April
