Final Round of DF65 Bi-Series

Boats1DF65 Bi-Series –round 4, Springfield Lakes - Nov 23

We had a fleet of 14 starters for the final round of this year’s DF65 Bi-series, but during the course of the 4 events a total of 32 skippers, a good participation rate from just 2 clubs.

Well the weather was fine and the winds were challenging, mostly from the NW though to NE and sometimes all of the above at the same time on varying parts of the lake, as can sometimes happen here, and favour no one. There were some slow races but we did manage to finish 16 for the day.

Mike had his usual good day with 2 of his 3 drops being only 2 points each and the third was not performance related, but a battery failure. That’s how to do it. Well done once again Mike.

Finally, thanks to the organisers of all four events for ‘making it happen’.

And for the final event, Trevor Fisher as RO, Norm Gough and Ian Ashe as observers, John Heard for the Gazebos, toilets, rescue boat and presentations, and our 2 favourite ladies for the scoring along with the most dedicated David Black. Thank you all.

Well done to all skippers for their participation during the year, and we look forward to a similar or even better year in 2020.
