HAPPY XMAS

A great year has passed with some fantastic sailing , Happy Xmas to all our friends and followers. We now look forward to our first event of 2018 on the 7th January .

 

DF 65 Winter Series Round 4 3rd December 2017

Well a chilly day and nobody missed to much the day after the AGM , plenty of salad unfortunatley made it a bit of a lottery. Ivan decided not to sail on the day and kindly did the scores , wind was very light and it really was cold, some of the new bouys were on the lake and look very bright. Very sorry but cant think of much more to say. Except this was the first day of the A + rigs and for those that dont have one yet I am reliably informed they will be in stock by a well known supplier before Xmas so if the wife says what do you want for Xmas, Slippers wont help

thanks to Alan E and Ivan for setting it all up

Mick – I have marked those skippers who were using A+ rigs for interest, you can leave them in or delete them as you see fit.

 

ROUND TWO I.O.M CHAMPIONSHIP & DF 95 WINTER SERIES COMBINED

Another fantstic day of racing for the I.O.M winter championship round two, a great breeze, full on sunshine but a bit nippy on the bank. Wind was gusting at time to max top suit and what a ding dong battle we had, the top three fighting tooth and nail to be on the top spot. Chris graves with his B/P put together a solid set of ten races and consistancy paid off, Al Newman sailed his fairly old ( no disrespect ) AB4 into second spot, with Jen Hand after quite a long break from sailing took third, on countback, Many thanks to the OOD’s and all the helpers to sort it all out,  a sterling job and Al Newman did superb keeping the races going. Great turnout considering how cold it was, but if you want good racing its no good staying in bed  .

=======================================================================================================================

DF 95 fleet did not disapoint with hopefully a new member Dave Pearson joining us and managing to win a race in his first outing, top suit all morning but the last two race’s were a bit of a struggle, Mick Chamberlain took top spot with Alan Edgar sailing really well on second and Ivan in third, Looks like we have 7 DF 95’s at the club now and this could be a great series again notice counback rules as it was close racing throughout the morning .
