The day was cold and wet, the wind was about as forecast at 15 mph from the NE gusting to a strength which was close to the limit of the tall suits. This made the temperature feel more like -2 than +2 as measured. Despite it all 6 IOM’s and 3 DF95’s were on the water.

A course was set along the east bank which consisted of 3 beats and 2 runs but this was shortened to 2 beats and 1 run in order to ensure a reasonable number of races and to finish with an odd number of races so that potential problems with ties were avoided. Despite some close racing this was achieved and it is recommended ( by the scorekeeper!) that this be adopted as a routine whenever possible.

The Duty RO, Keith Holmes, ran a well organised event despite the non attendance of the ARO, Geoff Burrell. Well done Keith.
