DF95 Racing …..Catch up day

It was a very pleasant, sunny morning with a low tide and light breeze at the cove.

But only four boats were in the water to enjoy a perfect morning of competition with a strengthening breeze from the south.

The course headed south from the East-West starting line, formed by the pin in the east and the drone buoy in the west, around the green mark leaving it to port, then north to the blue mark leaving it to port and back to the line. There were eight races and the last two were twice around.

Thanks to Judy David who, once again, operated the starter and kept score. She also enjoyed watching her husband Bill win five races becoming today’s champion.

Connie was there to cheer for Al who was third today. Paul won two races, was involved in numerous close finishes, and finished second. Kim won the first race and had a sail servo line come off the reel in the third race. he fixed it quickly but after that, it just wasn’t his day.

Rich came down to the cove without his boat as he’d forgotten to turn the boat power off. Ouch!

Pat Donovan came along just as we were leaving. Good to see you, Pat.

As always, the full results can be seen on our website mhbmyc.com

DF95s are scheduled to race next Thursday, June 6th (D-Day) but, at present, the forecast is for rain all day, in which case the makeup day will be a week from today.

A decision on Thursday racing will be communicated before 9 am on Thursday.

I think everyone had an enjoyable time today
