See Wayne, clear line of sight……
Less than a week now until the gun goes on the final DF Racing TT Series weekend of 2019 and with nearly 40 entries for the DF65 and over 40 for the DF95 it promises to be a good weekend of racing. The wind looks reasonable, although it’s a little far out to make any promises that it’ll be straight down the lake with blue skies and a steady F4….but we’ll see what Uncle Derek can get sorted for us.
Entries are probably acceptable up until 5 minutes before the gun goes on Saturday morning so come along and have a go!
Full entry lists are available by clicking here.
The view from The Mount pub beer garden, a great view, including the Isle of Man, despite what Wayne thinks…..
We’ve had a communication from the Fleetwood race team who have sent us the entry lists for both days of the Grand Finale which happens in two and a half weeks. Get your entry in if you know you’re going as it will help the race team to sort out heat boards and it will also allow the galley to stock up on cakes and snacks!
It promises to be a fitting farewell to the 2019 season which has been a good one. If you aren’t sure you’re good enough, trust me, you are. There is plenty of local accommodation available around the town so there is no excuse!
Check out the event page for the entry lists.
Ken Binks ready for Sunday’s racing
So we’ve had a report and some results for the away weekend in Holland. The overall results have been updated as well so you can see where you are standing in terms of the TT series. It looks like Tushy has it all sewn up at the top but second and third are level pegging with fourth to sixth spot still really tight with the possibility of changes there too at the final event at Fleetwood in just 19 days. Check out the full report and results on the Results 2019 page.
Full details of the grand finale are available on the Event page.
So it seems that the weather today in Holland was worse than yesterday’s. No matter, bigger breeze means bigger boat, roll on the DF95 racing. Twenty odd skippers turned out for lots of racing. Unsurprisingly Tushy won the day despite missing several races with gear failure.
He has celebrated his weekend victory by eating a chicken…..and possibly those burgers too! Well done to all those that made the effort.
Interesting conditions today out in Leiden, a mix of B and C rigs with some pretty sizeable chop coming down the course. Tushy made the best of it and took the day, followed by Ken Binks in second and Buzz Coleman in third spot showing that his break away has done him no harm.

Another entry update for this weekends Leiden event. Check out the event page for details.
Skippers are already in the area with motorhomers arriving yesterday and today for a bit of practice. Other UK skippers will be starting journeys today to arrive for tomorrows practice.
Good luck to all those of you competing.
Check out the Event page and you’ll see we are up to nearly 30 entries for the TT weekend. Still plenty of time to get an entry sorted, it’ll be a worthwhile trip.
