DF65's_8th September

"Today twelve sailors came along on a lovely sunny day with an approximate ENE wind and a keenness to have a nice morning sailing.

A course was set as follows: 5-Orange, red, 1, 5, red,1, 5, 2-red and off we went using the 2 minute countdown that gives fair warning to sailors to get sorted and down to the start line in time.

Starts were sometimes a bit too exciting when the wind changed to a run and one "General Recall" was issued when several yachts were over the line and it was too difficult to identify them all.

The first mark got a little cramped as did the second, but then we were getting a bit more spaced out on the reach/run/beat down to 5 and the beat back up to red. The course didn't have many possible routes but a good eye on the shifting wind helped in keeping the yacht moving.

Bruce and Ian were getting up amongst the front of the pack in a few races and John Barker did very well in coming higher than halfway up the pack in 4 races.

First places were shared across 4 sailors, Maurice Clayton 1, Chris Wilson 1 , Colin Salter 3 and John Bennett 4". JB
