DF95 December 1st & IOM December Medal Results

Race Officer: Peter Robinson
Assistant RO: Bruce Edgar
Results Officers: Pam & Gary Jones

The day started with the wind blowing from a North Easterly direction. It was A rig conditions for the first 2 races, however the wind quickly changed so it was soon C rig!
C rig continued after lunch.
The course was set reasonably close in which gave all skippers good visibility and all could clearly read the buoy numbers.
The layout was a midway start line, a top mark and an offset mark, then a bottom mark and offset mark.
This course worked well for the 14 skippers who took part.

A course was also set for the DF95 sailors. This was set closer to The Good Home end of the lake.

During the afternoon the wind speed registered at 40 km per hour. This really tested the boats, equipment, and sailors alike.
There were some failures of gear and a few rescues were required.
The general comment at the end of racing was that it had been a great challenge and very enjoyable.
Many thanks go out to Bruce, Pam & Gary for the great team work.
Peter Robinson.
