16 Skippers came to the line, very light , kinda no wind, but it was to soon fill in to a comfortable 5 to 8 knots from the North East , sailing from the East bank in glorious sunshine, Keith Holmes was quick of the mark in race one, With Rob W taking race two, Big news of the day was Phils Harphams new I.O.M made from a plastic printer at home ( sorry dont know the techo term) It looked fantastic and sailed really well,, a couple of rig mods and the boat will go really well, so well done Phil.. The top 4 boats had a right ding dong battle with Chris E coming out on top but only just, Chris G is right up there, Nice to see Rob W and hopefully we shall see more of him. You will all be pleased that there was no sign of salad at all, but what we did get was copius amounts of sticky chocolate cake as it was Chaz J 75 birthday, many thanks for that Chaz . Looking further down the order and certainly no disrepects we are seeing quite a few skippers steadily improving in this class ,amidst a pretty hot fleet, what was also nice to see was, we started with 16 skippers and we finished with 16 , Mick Cooper after only three years sailing is now a regular mid fleet sailor as is Roger Bowtle both have improved this year, and will only get better, Chaz Jordan sailed out of his skin today getting a seventh place ( could be the cake) Adrian C with his new boat seems to be enjoying his racing much more and i am sure it wont be long before we see him challenging the leaders. All in all a great mornings racing with skippers coming from far and wide. Great thanks to the OOD’s and all the little helpers.
Two more rounds before Xmas Dont miss it come and join in the great racing .
