‘Frozen Feet’ DF95 Winter Championship Series

Round 2 of the ‘Frozen Feet’ DF95 Winter Championship Series took place on Sunday 27th November 2016, hosted by Coalhouse Fort MBC.

Six local skippers together with a visitor from Ramsgate Yacht Club, were met by a NE wind of 6 – 8 mph, which meant all starting on ‘A’ Rigs. However, as the wind increased to 16 mph gusting up to 24 mph, all but 2 boats changed down to ‘B’ Rig over lunch. This only lasted for a few races before ‘A’ Rig was back in action.

Having won all 12 races, Buzz Coleman was the winner on the day with 10 points, followed by Angela Mears on 30 points and Adrian Tomlinson third on 34 points. Had Adrian completed the last three races, second and third place may have been somewhat different.

A delay in racing due to a boat getting tangled with a mark limited the day to 12 races but a very enjoyable day was had by all.
