DF65s race report Sunday 3rd July


Perfect winter racing

It was a beautiful afternoon at Castlewood Parkway with 20C and a NE to NNE breeze which stayed a pretty constant 6kts with the occasional gust and lull to make things interesting.  We started off the first race with 8 competitors but unfortunately Alan Whalley had to pull out with sail problems but very kindly did the scoring for us which was a great help.... thanks Alan.These Northerly quadrant winds create a bit of a challenge setting a decent startling line.  Crowding at the port end created some conversations but no blood was spilt.  The windward leg tended to be a bit of a drag race but having said that we did get some interesting final results, so all was not lost if you had an ordinary or poor start.  Rod Popham was early across the line returned and started last and ended up winning race 7…. well done Rod.
There were 4 seperate individual race winners  out of the 10 races sailed.  Wayne Coleman with 4 wins got the Gold medal today with 17 points well sailed Wayne.  In second spot with 3 wins and 23 points was Kim Swarbrick who had an absolute bolter in race 5, being half a leg in front at the top mark and was never headed.  In 3rd place with 2 wins and only 1 point behind Kim was Barry Glazier very well done to both of you.
There was only 1 point separating 4th, 5th and 6th with Rob Turton stringing 3 thirds  in the middle section of racing,  edging out Rod Popham and Keith Morris.  Fred Webber started off with a 2nd place but had a few challenges and couldn’t quite get # 12 firing on all cylinders.
Another special thanks to Wayne Coleman and Allan Whalley for helping put the buoys out and many thanks to everyone for helping with retrieving them at the end of racing.
