IOM Summer Series Round 7 10th September 2017

A fantastic Autumn morning greeted 13 skippers for round 7 of the I.O.M summer series , a steady light breeze that gradually increased as the morning wore on. Mick Chamberlain got off to a fine start in the light and won the first 5 races, Coffee break saw a change in futunes with both Chris E and Rob W taking charge at the front interupted in race 8 by a win from an unusually quiet Keith H. Sailing was all on the East bank and by the time the last two races were run  there were some very strong gusts causing a bit of nose diving on the runs. Mick Cooper continued his good form with his TNT just holding off Alan Newman with the AB4 , Roger Bowtle struggled a bit probably due to his early start leaving home at 7 am to come and fix one of the ride on mower’s, and it was also pleasing to see Ed W  finally getting the hang of I.O.M racing .The rain held off for the morning and eleven races were completed, many thanks got to Rob W for keeping the action going as our OOD for the day and of course to the many helpers and competitors for making it such an enjoyable day’s racing. Well done Mick C gbr 46 for another fine performance in the V9 holding of a strong challenge. The next and final round for this series is on the 1st of October,  a nice warm up ready for the Clive Hand on the 8th October .
