4 IOMs and 2 DFs , although disappointing, turned out to be a reasonable attendance considering the weather. Heavy rain, with periods of even heavier rain, continued for the period up to the refreshment break, followed by a gradual improvement into blue sky and sunshine at the end. The wind was pretty consistent but blowing off the car park meant considerable turbulence over a large part of the course. There did not appear to be any incidences of weed. In view of the small fleet all boats were started at the same time without problems.
Thanks to the Duty RO Norman Fish who was at the lake early to set up and kept a steady pace through the morning.
