DF65 Nationals day 1

Well, what can we say about today, let’s start with the weather, it has been and still is pretty stunning. John Tushingham has first degree burns and looks like a lighthouse, absent Wayne Stobbs’ boat seems to go much better without him in attendance and the wind has been a real challenge for both competitors and the race team.

I don’t have any pictures I’m afraid other than the obligatory results sheet which tells the story of the day which was run very well by the race team and was sailed with good spirits by the skippers. Frustrating conditions made for some out of position uk skippers and it looks like local knowledge is proving useful.

Some social now followed by day two in the morning, starting with C fleet.
