DF 65 Racing Results 12 May 2021

The freshish S/SW wind made for a nice change from the light breezes of late. There was plenty of wind shifts to make the windward works a tactical challenge. Gains to be gained….or not. B rigs were in favour with Peter T and Grant sticking with the A rig however there was no significant gain with the larger sail area.

IOM HANDICAP RACING MAY 2nd

The threat of persistent rain over the morning may have impacted on numbers for the day. We had 6 starters for the day.

The wind was threatening to move south however kept in the west making the course massively starboard.  We eventually corrected it to balance it up.  The breeze started at 3-5 kts from the WSW the moving to the South at 5kts strengthening to 15kts.  At 11am it then moved to the SE and after we changed down to B rigs the wind dropped back to 5kts from the SE. Frustrating!!!

Another great turnout with 11 boats tackling the gusty conditions which produced some close racing, with Andrew G, Murray D Peter B and Phil R fighting it out for the lead in most races.
