Another fantastic day at Scotland farm for the combined I.O.M championship and DF 95 series , First up the I.O.M

Darin Ballington fresh from his exploits at the worlds in France and once again showed his class. The morning started with a rules half hour with Chris Elliott giving a chat on different parts of the rules and strategy with a little help from Darin and Dave Burke,  and this went down well with the members,  so more of that to come in future weeks I am sure. Racing got underway a little late, we sailed off the East bank and because the wind was due west the weather mark was a slight eyesight test, but I have to say a lot less mayhem there than I have seen in the past. We had a couple of visitors, always welcome, but it was Darin who took the first 4 races with Chris in close attendance, It was going to be a brit pop day, taking the three top places. The start line seemed more orderley,  probably due to the chat we had, and racing was done with generally good behaviour.

Well done to Darin and many thanks to Race officers Mick and Ed   results below

Blistering speed , as you would expect D B’s Brit Pop

Four skippers contested round two of the DF 95 great breeze and they just did the one lap of the course . again from the East bank. Ivan took control staright away with four wins, Gordon just could not get going early on, but picked up by race five gaining a couple of wins, Alan Edgar got a couple of good results late on but it was not enough to worry Ivan who won the last race and took the top step of the podium. A great racing day and everybody went home happy, I must just mention Ed who was assistant OOD , he got a second in race one , but may have been suufering from a sleep issue as it kinda went downhill after that, Keep practicing Ed it will come good in the end .  results below
