10 Competitors turned out for round seven on a crisp sunny morning with a good south west wind that needed B suits for all ten races, A brand new Brit Pop was on show in an unusual colour (White) but it did not lack performance in the capable hands of skipper Darin B, Chris Elliott and Mick Chamberlain made valiant attempts to close the flying machine down but the result was final with six wins in ten races. Good sailing was again seen by the Lintel and Gadget of Mick Cooper and Bert W, Joe H had some good moments and Chaz J was very consistent, Tracy Ballington was sailing her new red BritPop and what a difference it made to her performance, well done Tracy, and watch out Jen H .
Good work was done by the race team the two Mick C’s after retrieving the clubhouse roof from a field with Bert W following the previous day’s storm, all undamaged I might add .
thanks to all for a great mornings racing. This was the last in the Winter series, so keep your eye on the calendar for the start of the summer series.

Another good morning sailing at Scotland Farm. The weather was dry and not too cold with a predominantly NW 8 – 10 MPH wind swinging to NE for short periods of time. A windward leeward course was set along the South bank.
As can be seen from the results there was some close sailing with the top three positions covered by a single point and 4 skippers having at least one win.

13 IOMs (plus 2 Big Dragons) were greeted by a bank of fog and very little wind. When a light breeze finally arrived it was from the SE so a course was set along the South bank. This sufficed for most of the morning until a slight shift required adjustment to the start line. By mid-day the sun was shining and some good sailing was enjoyed.
Results follow after finally sorting out the tie breaking function in HMS.
