IOM Championship and DF 95 Summer Series on 11th September 2016

Fantastic day of sailing at Scotland Farm , 15 I.O.M competitors and 4 DF 94 skippers , steady 8/10 knots from just West of South made it perfect for racing on the East Bank Cris E started well with a win then Mick C took the next two races but that was as good as it got for the V9 , Kieth Holmes sailed a steady series and got better as the morning went on, The Df 95 fleet started two minutes before the I.O.M , and in future we may have to change things slightly as the I.O.M fleet did not stay away from the start line as they should ( respect for smaller boats ) on the whole it all went very well with little or no horrible green stuff around to spoil things. It was nice to see Chris back and winning after his poor performance at the Nationals ( we all have a bad day or two ). Rob Wilson who did very well at the Nats stuggled to find his form and may have had eleccy problems. It was nice to see some members who have been absent for a while, lets hope the exciting racing will bring them back for more . Many thanks to the OOD and assistand Bob G and Graham K , fantastic job , well done to Chris E for winning the day for the I.O.M , Looking at the DF 95 , Gordon bennett was on fire winning every race bar one, must be his secret set up, Ivan came in a close second, and Alan Edgar with his new DF95 came in third , Ed is improving at every outing, but the same old power problems seem to hamper him each week.  Great turnout 19 boats well done to all,  and for the harmonious way in which everybody conducted them selves on the bank ,,if not on the water . ( just joking )
