I.O.M Summer series round three

The Morning started with a teach in with rig tuning using Roger Bowtles Brit Pop as a guide for starters then a few basic rules at the weather mark and then a couple of practice starts to try and get the hang of keeping your boat stationary on the start line as the clock winds down, great job by Chris Elliott and many thanks to him a few lessons learned I am sure, and some great questions being fired back at Chis by the tentative audience, 12 skippers in all.

Racing proper got under way by 11am and 6 races were completed by 1pm, Adrian Cripps hot off the line in race one went on to take the win, Before Chris E moved up a gear and took race two. Bob Geary sailed a very consistant set of 6 race discarding his worst position a 4th, great sailing Bob well done. The breeze was between 3/4 and I would say 6 knots and every race and every beat was different.

All in all a good morning for all and combining the racing with the teach in worked well. Well done to Chris for the win, and everybody who helped out.  some pics below
