DF95 42 Degrees South Regatta
Sorry, not much on the actual report today, as I was only there for the first two races and last two, but on all accounts, a very enjoyable day was had by all competitors. Sounds like a small amount of week affected most skippers at some point, and a few had mini disasters with equipment failing at just the wrong moment – but that’s sailing for you. The lunch break was extended quite a bit, with a lull in the gentle northerly breeze, with about 2hrs lost, so in the end, it was quite a creditable job by all to finish with ten races for the day.
Thanks to our Pro on the day, Mike Hickman, as well as Les Hansen, for making all the financials were done and for scoring the entre day in some quite hot sunshine.
Congrats to Chris Wood, putting in a superbly consistent day, easily winning on 20 points, with David Jones storming back at the end of the day to finish in second, on 29 points, further on to Peter Darcey (31 points) in third spot by countback to Ray Joyce.

Everyone has been doing their best, but only the greatest can emerge at the top! I know that it's quite hard to reach top five, but all of the skippers exerted effort just to make it there. By the way, I am also happy to see that Peter Darcey is finally back and he showed us his upgraded style and tactics that brought him to the top! It wasn't really a surprise to me because we all know what he is capable of in the first place. My eyes is on Chris Wood and David Jones because they are on the top this week!
