We’re away….again

So a super short production week this week, Monday and Tuesday were busy busy, clearing all our orders, Wednesday saw us on a roadtrip to Birkenhead to get some IOM sails measured (yes they did by the way!) before getting a bit of DF65 training in at the Birkenhead club by joining in their Wednesday morning series with some really light and shifty Birkenhead conditions. Much fun and a second spot finish was hard earned. I needed to get my new DF65 on the water and tuned, having built it quickly at the back end of last season for the last TT event it just wasn’t quite right….it’s better now….

Today sees our last production day until Monday, we’ve plenty to do so any orders placed today will not get looked at until Monday I’m afraid.

Tomorrow sees us roadtripping 300 miles South to Gosport from the next couple of rounds of the DF Racing UK TT Series. A whole heap of entries for both days will see a great weekend of racing take place. I might even be collecting my new RG65…maybe!

Last Sunday saw us up at West Lancs YC for the final event in the winter series there. It was a great day of racing even with the low turnout due to the forecast being pretty grim. We had the new DF95 on the water and equipped with C rig it went well all day and myself and John Brierley spent most of the day tuning and match racing around the course, he won some, I won some and at the end of the day we finished on the same points with the same number of firsts and seconds and it was a big countback to declare me as the winner by no margin at all. This also gave me the series which was a surprise but a pleasing result, I counted a first and two second spots.

Anyhow I must get on, early start in the morning. The shop is open to take your order as ever, it’ll get looked at on Monday.
