DF95 Scratch Series Round 1
We were met with a wonderful day at MBYC today, with a nice southerly 10-15 knot breeze throughout.
Starting in A Rigs, most sailors got a start, but after the first race, many changed to B rigs, which was much better suited to the day.
Unfortunately, a fair rate of attrition occured for various reasons, which brought the great field of ten sailors down to six by the end of the day.
There was a fair spread of results today, but the final scores did not reflect the closeness of the racing throughout the day.
That said, Stuart Dawes thoroughly deserved his first place on the day, again showing that he is one of our best DF skippers, with just 16 points after 12 races. Of real note is that Stu only had one 3rd place counted as his worst score on the day.
Michael Hickman was 7 points adrift, and also sailed very consistently, with 3rd being the worst score as well on the day.
David Jones came in third today, just two behind Michael. With a slow start, he really turned it on, especially with that purple patch towards the end with four wins in a row!
Wednesday will see the second round of the DF95 Handicap Series, first race starting at 11am.
Next Sunday will be Long Distance Series Round 2, starting at 11am.
