IOM Winter Series Round 6 6th January 2019

Fantastic morning at the lake with only one missing ingredient ” Wind”,   12 skippers hung around for a 30 minute postponement and then we had a slow start it probably took 10 minutes for boats to get to the start line ,, anyway it was a beat into a south westerly  !/?’>)&$, up the East bank and one lap was plenty, Jen Hand started well and took the win in the first race,  Bob Geary was with his new Sedici and did rather well for a first time out, and it was only one point that seperated Chris Graves From Bob at the end. The beat was fluky and if you got on the wrong side it was dificult to recover. Peter Cogill had a much better day recording a win in race 4 . Adrian lost his rudder servo after three promising races, but dont worry he will be on it for the next round.  All in all a very satisfying mornings racing if not frustrating for some, Well done to Chris E for his win, and well done all skippers for a enjoyable morning lake side , Thanks Graham and Mick for getting six races in, in what is probably the lightest winds seen at the farm for a very long time .
