Home » Uncategorized » I.O.M WINTER SERIES ROUND TWO


Well well after all th horrible gales and rain we have been having,  Scotland Farm comes up trumps again, If a little showery to start an almost perfect weight of wind for the fleet to start on B suits , A perfect beat along the east bank made for some very exciting racing. 11 competitors started Racing and it was nice to see that 10 actually finished Ivan unfortunately having radio problems early on , A new member Ed came down to watch proceedings and kindly took over the scoring , so many thanks for that. With Dave Burke missing due to Woodhead pass being closed because of high winds it was going to be the battle of the V9’s and Jen’s Britpop, in fact there were two AB4’s also racing and both showed some magical turns of speed. Around noon the wind had abated and Chaz was first to put on the top suit and would have won the race had it not been for the superb covering of Mick C , the next race everybody changed rigs to A suit and I suppose the wind was around  80% for the rig , Another new member racing for the first time Mick Cooper .who has not sailed before in his life, showed a lot of promise with his Lintel, and said afterwards he thoroughly enjoyed himself, all in  all a great days racing , just marred by the very last race when the heavens opened up and everybody got very wet . Results below .
