IOM Summer Series Round 10 18th August 2019

Nice weather greeted the 11 skippers for round 10 of the Summer series, Breeze was from the south west and although a/ b suits were on the water it was marginally A suit, Chris G OOD for the day set a great course with three good beats.

. Chris E who leads the Series started well with his B/P winning the first race , but then Mick C’s  Sedici quickly found form winning the next four, we welcomed Graham Whalley from Manor Park sailing a very nice B/P that could easily be confused with Jen Hands new B/P !!!!! Chris G was always a threat when not keeping an eye on the start line. The racing was at times fast and furious and on occasions a bit of downwind diving needed to be avoided if possible, we had two rain showers, one very heavy but it was gone in less than ten minutes and the sun quickly dried your clothing. Getting a good start was paramount and then going as fast as possible on the tricky beat to the first mark. A very enjoyable mornings racing, with the Sedici showing it has the pace to combat the challenge from other classes and record its fourth win in the series.  

Many thanks to most of you for helping out especially getting the dingy out at the end also well done to the OOD’s , and a special thanks to Ed W for doing our scoring . It was nice to see exciting competitive racing in preperation for those doing the Nationals next weekend . The day was once again weed free, and the lake does look in superb condition .
