Well the RO was left with egg on his face today. BOM promised 19 deg & a nice northerly breeze as promoted by the RO but what we got was certainly more like 7 deg & only an intermittent light southerly. Nevertheless about 18 DF95's turned up & we commenced a series of teams races made up of teams of 3 boats. Due to the very light conditions only 4 teams races were completed plus one scratch race before we pulled the pin just after lunch. The good thing about the light weight 95's is their ability to keep moving in very light airs.
Chris Wood removed the cob webs from sn 40 & showed he has lost none of his sailing skills also the newest DF95 owner Stuart Harris was sailing his newly acquired sn 58 & actually seemed to be enjoying himself.
In the end team 2 consisting of Kim Potter, Cliff Eaves & Stuart Harris took away the wine.
The DF95 fleet will continue their monthly Wednesday sailing at the dam until Christmas when the venue choice will again be discussed with the owners. In the meantime don't forget to have a sail on Tuesdays at Puddle-duck dam, added incentive is coffee served on site.
Thanks for the support of participating skippers & we will try & supply better weather next month
