ROUND FIVE I.O.M WINTER SERIES

Eleven brave souls came down to the farm to race, it could have been 14,  but 3 sensible skippers decided the wind was a tad too strong. The snow had disappeared and in fact it was a little muddy underfoot , The sun came out in fits, but the wind straight out of the north-west was biting. C rig was the order of the day, no ifs no buts, and if you left your c rig at home !?/\$?*\…..    and so  racing took place along the south bank. First out of the blocks was Dave B gbr 30 followed by Chris E, gbr 0 , there seemed to be a little confusion at the weather mark, and as always happens quite a few boats follow the leader. When the whistle blows for the briefing ,,                       ( listen up ). Darin B, gbr 92 did not make the same mistake again and went on to win the next 5 races without reply , with a variety of yachts getting 2nd place Dave gbr 30 doing best and then going on to win race 7 and 8. The breeze did not relent all morning and 9 races were sailed, as the morning wore on retirements for one reason or another took there toll and we lost 5 boats. Our thanks go to Chris Corrin who decided to stay be our race officer, and all the other guys who stayed to help when it would have been so easy to just go home. The results are below the first picture , close run thing with Darin getting result on countback .
