Another good morning of racing at Montrose this morning which attracted 10 cold skippers who fronted the starter in a steady NNW A rig breeze. The usual format of scratch & handicap races with 10 races completed.
Some very good performances I thought with a special mention to Geoff Mathews & Richard Barwick & Phil Turnbull who were sailing particularly well also Cliff who half way through the event was in the lead but a couple of poor races dragged his fleet position down. As much as the handicapper tried otherwise Lisa Blackwood easily won the day on 24 points from David Jones on 32 points, Cliff Eaves on 34 points & Richard & Phil equal 4th on 42 points. Col Johnson had a good 5th on 51 points.
The standard of the fleet is definately improving as skippers attain better boat handling skills - we just need to see a few less collisions & rule infringements & the whole DF95 experience will be rewarding for everyone.
Sorry no photos, I did remember my camera but forgot to use it.
Tuesday week is DF95's at Cygnet at 10 am & as usual Tank has guaranteed the weather.
