A Southerly breeze of between 5 and 10 knots made for smooth water and fast sailing conditions at the dam today.
A big fleet of 18 skippers turned up and there was close racing all day. It is great to see some who are returning to Wednesday sailing after a break over winter.
Two guest skippers joined with us today. Martin Svensen, who has bought Lisa’s impressive olive green Katun 2, and Guy Skinner who was borrowing John Cole-Cook’s second boat. A warm welcome to you both.
Wayne Behrens cam out on top a tight table today winning with consistently high placings. Well done Wayne!
Our guest, Guy Skinner took second place. Guy’s results included an impressive win in the last race.
I managed to take the third podium spot today with my boat sailing much faster this week after some rigging problems last week.
Thanks as usual to PRO John Banks who set good courses and kept the event moving well. John is hoping to get his boat back on the water soon.
Quite a few skippers will be heading to the DF95 State Championships on the weekend. The best of luck to all.
Club sailing will continue at Montrose on Sunday with long distance racing.
Next Wednesday’s handicap will be for DF95’s.
