DF95 Series #12

It was a little cooler this morning and a little less humid. The pleasant conditions and an adequate breeze enticed 13 members and one guest to bring their boats to the cove. Manny decided not to race and did a great job keeping score, Shelley also didn’t race but got lots of practice, and John Perkins was trying out the boat he bought from Steve, but couldn’t get radio contact.  We welcomed Don Ouimette as our guest, once again. So we started proceedings with 11 boats competing. As the wind was coming mainly from a southerly direction we adopted a clockwise course with the downwind mark being the red for three races, switching to the blue as the wind changed for the last three. Rich Field got off to a great start winning the first two races. He also got two seconds and a third to finish as the highest placed club member, but the overall winner today was our guest, Don who won the last four races and had one second place and one third. Kim was third today with one second and three thirds with Rob in fourth place. In fifth place was Henry equal on points with Rob, but Rob got the place on the highest place finish rule. The full results can be found on our website mhbmyc.orgA big crowd today and lots of fun

The next DF95 race day will be next Thursday, August 5th when low tide will be at 11.33.
But, before that, we have Solings in the water on Tuesday, August 3rd when the tide will be coming in from a low at 09.48
Enjoy the weekend, see you Tuesday or Thursday or both.Derek
