DF95 Series #2

For the first time this season the weather conditions were conducive to DF95 racing and seven members agreed and brought their boats down to the cove. One of them was a new member, Curtis Rencurrel.  Another new member, Arlow Sampson came along to spectate with his wife.Please give them a big welcome. Bill Raposa also stopped by before the racing to say hello.The wind was strong, gusty, and chilly from the southwest which presented quite a challenge for our brave competitors over the eight races run this morning.Henry DiPietro got off to a flying start by winning the first race. He also had two second place finishes and three third places to finish third overall.But the real battle today was between Rob and Paul.  It was very close, exciting racing with Paul winning four races and Rob winning three.However, Paul had two second places and Rob had four which was just enough to give him first place overall today…..by just one point! The only other sailor to get into the top three places was Wilkie who finished in third place four times and ended the day with fourth place overall. Kim was fifth, Albert sixth, and finally, Curtis who only raced three races before succumbing to mechanical problems. His boat provided Rob with his only rescue of the day.The full results can be found, as always, on our website mhbmyc.org
The next race in the DF95 series will be next Thursday, June 2nd when the high tide will be just about our start time of 11.00
But, before that, on Tuesday, May 31st it will be the turn of the Solings for their third race day of the season. The tide will be going out from the high at 09.37. Racing starts at 11.00

Lots of friendly, competitive fun today.

Stay safe, well, and happy,
