IOM Winter Series Round 5 26th February 2017

Well not much to say about 26th February at Scotland Farm , cos if you were not there you probably missed the best racing, and the biggest entry for a club race in a while ,  loadsa smiling faces , new boats, old boats, this is what we pay our subs for. 17 skippers, almost wall to wall sunshine 12 degrees, and if you stayed in bed well all I can say is rowlock’s , Ok rant over, Chris started well with a bullitt in the first race, Dave having a battery problem meant he did not finish, but sure enough his brand new britpop came back to form winning the next three out of four. It all started with a good B suit breeze apart from the Lintel of Mick Cooper who chanced the A rig, to be fair the breeze was a bit up and down but once you were rigged you left well alone , to be fair also, Mick Cooper will be going home a very happy bunny gaining three second places in a fleet of very good skippers and he has only been sailing for a year, well done old man. The course was three very long beats and two runs almost the length of the lake the wind was perfect, the course was so long only 8 races were held. There were battles going on throughout the fleet and it made for great veiwing .  The V9 of Mick Chamberlain saved the best to last with two straight wins after a fairly consistant performance, (Ok trumpet back in the box) and finally topped the leaderboard,  Dave Burke just nicking second from Chris Elliott, with Rob Wilson getting fourth, I think everybody enjoyed themselves,  need we say more dont miss the next round, put it in your diary now IT IS the 19th MARCH 

Many thanks to Mick C and Graham K for sorting the course
