Frozen Fingers DF65 Winter Championship (13/03/2016)

Round 6 and the final round of the Frozen Fingers DF65 Winter Championship took place on a bright but cold Sunday 13th March 2016. There was a strong breeze primarily from the ENE and so a windward/leeward course was set at the southern end of the lake.

Three skippers, other than those shown on the score sheet, turned up but one had transmitter issues before racing started and the other two only had No. 1 sails and felt the wind was too strong to be able to handle the boat, with most skippers using No. 2 sails.

Whilst Buzz Coleman set the pace in most races, Angela Mears managed to take a couple of wins and score some consistent second places. There was then some close racing between Glenn Meekcoms and John Newton for the subsequent places.

At the end of the day, Buzz Coleman was the winner with 12 points, followed by Angela Mears on 24 points and John Newton third on 38 points.

This being the final round and two discards to count, it was obvious that Buzz Coleman was going to be the Frozen Fingers DF65 Winter Champion with 4 points, but the following places were going to be close. However, whilst Dave Chamberlain and Angela Mears both finished on 14 points, with two second places for Dave and only one for Angela means that Dave is second and Angela third.
