DF 65 Summer series Round 1 30th April 2023

As Mick would say another great day at Lincoln , Seriously it was a lovely day The breeze was straight down the East bank enabling A plus rigs to be used . Only 7 skippers out to play but it was very good racing throughout the fleet, Colin Toll who was assistant OOD has not yet had a chance to put his 65 together and did all the scoring on the day, Myself and Colin arrived early to get all the OOD stuff out and ready, and when Mick C arrived he went out in the boat and moved a couple of buoys so we had a great course, thank you, I Jen H 69 was quick of the mark but struggle to keep up with Mick C 46 but on the last leg managed to get in front and take the first win, Gordon B 23 took the third spot . From then on it was Mick Mick Mick and more Mick C 46 as we just could not live with his speed and superb boat handling skills , and he went on to win the next 5 races. It was great racing up and down the fleet and at Coffee we insisted that we check out his settings, and so we again set of I ,, Jen H 69 won race 7 and was mighty pleased , Richard J 699 fresh from his experience at Eastbourne was doing very well and just managed to pip Gordon B 23 by one point, Ed had to pack up with Battery problems towards the end and the Two Alans were quite close at the end.

Many thanks to all who help put the kit away, very well done to Mick C 46 for his win. And we hope to see a few of you next week, just before the coronation .

Writeup Jen H , many thanks
