DF65 Racing Wednesday 14th April 2021

Six boats showed up to the pond today for some scratch racing. Also a couple of new boats down for a practise sail. The wind was fairly steady 10 to 16Km/h from the west , but as per last week

we had lots of shifts happening, requiring several tacks on shifts to get to the windward mark

in the shelter of the west bank, where it was even more flukey.
