I.O.M Winter series round 5

Lovely blue sky , lightish winds from the North 14 skippers, but hey Just a word of warning if you are up for OOD,, ensure the dingy is tied onto something before you go for a full lifeboat launch !!!! nuff said, the course on the south bank was perfect, a great beat and run round twice, and there was enough shifty stuff to catch you out, we welcomed Darin and Tracy as visitors ,and Darin showed us all how it should be done with a superb show of sailing/racing his 20 year old Widget, his worst result was a fourth, (and I noticed he was eating a sandwich,) just joking but it showed us all we have a way to go. A variety of designs on show here and the racing was really good and competetive up and down the fleet, Pete W showed some good form and Adrian C is now getting the hang of the Sedici , despite a bit of a dodgy looking bend in the mast. The Two lady skippers were seperated by 1 point, and had some great races, Chris G was wearing long trousers today but his head was still in Mexico. Disapointing show from Mick Cooper today, and I am sure we will all study the score sheet and hold our hands up to some errors in tactics and maybe trim and correct before round 6 .

A great mornings racing  Thanks to Chris E and all the helpers , and many thanks also must go to Geoff S who supplied some juicy cake for the half time break and also for working out the scores for us .


Brit Pop at speed

Just in case you wondered what a Widget look like
