A shifting Westerly wind made conditions tricky for today’s DF95 Handicap at the Dam. The wind gusted from 0 – 10 knots and shifted from NNW to SSW without warning. A strong fleet of thirteen skippers attended today and A-rigs were the universal choice.
Andrew Wardrop attended to PRO duties and did a great job setting courses in the difficult conditions. Thanks Andrew. Courses which involved the deep water buoy - ‘buoy 9’ were probably the best for the conditions even though the distant mark challenged our eyesight.
Race honours were well shared, with just about all skippers reaching the podium at least once and tight scoring at the top of the tally table.
Just one point separated the three place-getters. Mat Gray was the overall winner today with race results consistently at the pointy end. Mat was just one point ahead of Pete Darcey and Ray Joyce who were equal on points. Peter Darcey was awarded second on count-back ahead of Ray by virtue of more race wins.
Congratulations to all.
Remember that if you do not intend to sail in the upcoming DF65 and DF95 National Championships but are available to assist in the running of the event then please give Kyle a message.
