DF95 Frozen Feet Round 1 13-01-2019
12 Competitors were met by a grey day with Gusty winds from the west to north west. This meant the whole lake was raced on at some point as the fleet moved from one end to the other then back again. The DF95 welcomed three new skippers to the class, Yukio Takahashi, Jonathan Beale, and Geoff Howell, with Jonny enjoying his firts outing in the class taking 2nd place, after a close competition with Glenn Meekcoms finishing just 2 points back in 3rd. With such a difficult wind direction initial racing took place on a zig zag coarse allow two windward’ish legs sailed twice per race with a long run in between. After 7 races the wind had swung more north of west resulting in two coarse changes in succession before we all went back to were we started. With all that 16 Races were completed with just a couple of drop outs due to electrical problems for the last few races. Some great close racing at all areas of the fleet were enjoyed by all!
