So Thursday lunchtime, race truck packed and we’re away to the DF65 Nationals at Two Islands RYC in Milton Keynes. The weather looks pretty good, warm and possibly windy on Sunday. 52 skippers, lets see how we get on.
We did ok at the recent DF95 Nationals and scored a second spot finish on Sunday afternoon and if it hadn’t have been for Tushy and his lucky shorts we might have gone one better! Still, we had an awesome weekend of racing right up until the last metre of the last race when my rudder servo crapped out during a tack and left me going around in circles whilst the fleet finished!!
We haven’t raced since as we have been busy here at the yard producing sails and doing “real” boat stuff so we’re off a day early to get some tune into the DF65 and also have a race with some of the TIRYC club members tomorrow morning with the DF95.
Any orders placed today and over the weekend will get looked at on Monday when we get back.
