DF 95 Summer Series Round 3 23rd June 2019

Hi everybody, I need some new words of praise for the sailing at Scotland farm, It just seems to get better and better, Today 10 skippers enjoyed some fantastic racing, The weather was perfect sunshine and a steady 7/10 knots from the North East, a back hand dogleg course was agian used to great effect giving two great beats and a long run and all the time keeping skippers boats close to the bank so no eye strain was needed, I can also say but ” Mumms” the word that here we are aproaching July and the usual annoying salad has yet to rear its ugly head, we will all have a view on it I am sure of that, See results below but have to say it was a great mornings racing, Thanks to all the helpers and Official OOD’s . Just to remind you that next week is round 4 of the DF 95 c;lass as it was changed by mutual consent.                  So DF 95 NEXT WEEK .

DF 65Summer Series Round 3 9th June 2019

A great morning at Scotland farm for round three of the DF 65 series , Only 8 skippers for this one , but the weather was great and a light South Westerly around 7/8 knots gave a good beat and run course. Rig of the day was A + but the were a couple of C.B.A so they were on A rig and if the breeze had just been a few knots more they could have come into there own. Mick C fresh from the DF 65 Nationals was quick of the mark with a bullitt in the first race closely shadowed by Ivan, Adrian took the second race, with Mick C just gaining twpo places with yards to go to get 2nd.

Alan Newman was sailing well and got a couple of 2nd’s in race 3 & 4 much better for the yellow hull, Gordon chased him hard and finished up 3rd. Billy Mac was not sailing so well today and had one or two issues with rig which may now be sorted.

Adrian just pipped Ivan on countback, and you can see the results below. Many thanks to the OOD’S and ED for doing most of the scoring ,  and helpers for a great morning on the bank.

As we have just deduced,,,,,,,   this series will be the best 5 from 7.



DF 65 racing at a good venue , many thanks to the photographer Sue Brown Taken just after the start .

IOM Summer Series Round 5 2nd June 2019

Another good day at Scotland Farm with a warm breeze from the SW peaking about 15 mph in the gusts. A long course up and down the East bank proved tricky at times particularly close to the banks.

Todays Officers were Graham K and Ed W.

DF 95 Summer Series Round 2 26th May 2019


Another fantastic day at the lake for round   of the DF 95 summer series , winds from the south west around 12/ 14 knots made it just B rig although there were three A rigs trying it .

We welcomed Chris and Lisa More, from Askern and the morning started with Specific training to the DF 95 , this was taken by Mick Chamberlain and included setting up the boat and rig with visuals on an actual boat so all could see what they are trying to achieve each time they put the boat on the water, approximately one hour, The script and also some DF 95 measurements have been added to the website but care should be taken , as we do not know how correct they are,

Racing got underway around 1045 with 11 skippers ( good for bank holiday weekend ) and Chris More on a B rig took the first bullet in fact he took the next two races, Mick C was on the A rig he did the training on and was in close contention for a couple of races but it was clear it should be B rig and at coffee break after three races he changed down.

Roger Bowtle and Jen Hand had some good races as did Lisa More still struggling with her A suit.

The wind picked up a little towards the end but at least the rain held off, It seemed that changing down for Mick C did the trick as he took all remaining four races, after the coffee break when a load of cakes appeared from nowhere ( many thanks Diane) it was Rogers big birthday.

Hopefully the advice on tune and rig will have come in handy, and the “ process” can be used from here on in, Many thanks to the race team and especially Ivan and Roger.  7 good races and not a sign of Salad made for a great mornings racing.
