Another great turnout today with 14 yachts on the water for the second installment of our DF95 Mid Week Handicap for the year.
A fine North to north Westerly for much of the day, albeit a little bit flukey. It got tot he top end of A rig towards lunch time with a few pullig the B rigs out for the last few before lunch, but returned to A rigs after the break.
Big thanks to Andrew Wardrop for coming along to Pro the day today. Volunteering your time was truly appreciated.
In third place today, was Wayne Behrens, on 23 points. Looks like he may have found a few flat spots out there, but was able to throw those couple away at least.
In second, just three ahead, was Ray Joyce, on 20 points. A good consistent day. Ray is often finding the right places to be at the dam and using it to his full advantage.
In first place this week, on just 1 point, is Stuart Dawes. The DF95 dam master in his element in the flukey airs. Described to me this evening as "on fire, picked everything which was clever because the wind was very flukey". A good round win to cap off the birthday week Stu - but the guys may be happy to know you'll be back at work after this week......
It was also extremely appreciated by the orgainsers, with the amount of help offered today in the setup and pack up of the equipment and ramp etc today. It really makes the workload so much easier and has everyone leaving the day so much happier and energised to return for the next sail day. Thanks again all.
Saturday - A Class action at Montrose, button press at 1pm. There are spare yachts available, so if you're interested in having a sail, contact me and we will make sure one is ready to go. I am fairly sure we can get up to 3 unused yachts up and running for the day - the club Venom, my GothicA and I think Rod Marshall may have a Blister that could be ready to sail.
Sunday: RM Scratch at Montrose, buttn press at 1pm. There is also the possibility of a spare indie to sail for an interested sailor (my original red one), so contact me if you'd like to try it out for the day.
Next Wednesday: Handicap sailing for IOM’s at Risdon Brook Dam. (11:00 button)
