With three of our regular skippers unable to attend today the fleet of DF95’s was smaller than usual, however it was still tight at the top right up to the end.
The light tricky conditions played havoc and had everyone guessing throughout the six races run today. When it did remain steady it was most enjoyable and satisfying. Hells corner once again proved everyone’s undoing with more than one skipper caught out when the wind dropped and they missed the mark.
Ron ran aground across the far side of the pond, nothing unusual there, however he strongly denied it right up to when he realised he’d been steering the wrong boat.
Tony started well with the first race win of the day however due to other commitments he had to leave after the next one, denying us all the chance to level the score.
I misjudged several buoys and always seemed to pick the wrong wind shift so finished well down in the order.
On the day Stuart was just too strong and finished on top. Geoff also sailed very well to pick up second spot.
After 6 races and one drop, the scores were.
Tony on 21 points, Ron on 19, Col on 13, Geoff on 10 and Stuart with just 7 points.
No pics this week however the tip is next week they will be back!
Next week it’s the return of the pocket rockets, the mighty DF65’s.
