DF65's 15th September

After two races this morning, Chris moved the course toward the western end of the

lake, to make the most of the available potentially backing Northerly. Thus skippers were treated to a diagonally even bias on the new start line between 6/Orange; thence to the pier-placed orange and black, sic : (OB, 5, 6, Or) x 2, to the finish line off the pier: 4/OB. The prospect of completing a 360 degree, penalty turn in a light breeze, (to include both tack and gybe, in either order!) may have piqued many a helmsman's interest to sail clear of danger. On as few occasions, the 'long pole of Assistance' was employed to disengage a keel from the shallows.
