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 .
