IOM Summer Series round 1

A fantastic day for round one of the summer series for I.O.M’s at Lincoln

Fifteen skipper’s including two very welcome visitors battled it out on a beatifull day made for sailing, South Westerly breeze that increased through the morning but all skippers retained A rig throughout the 11 races. The OOD’s set a long course off the East bank that tested the fitness of most, and I am sure there are some aching limbs as we wake up on Monday. I was told 6.5 miles most of us walked, controlling our boats.

Rob Wilson was quick of the mark and took race one with Darin B and Tacy B taking second and third spot, Mike Williams who had been been working late on Saturday to rethread his lines and attach to the drum came home in fourth place, a great effort. Race two saw Dave R take top spot with Rob W close by and Pete Walters in third. In Race three Darin B stamped his authority on the event by taking the first of six consecutive wins and sealing his victory on the mornings racing. There were some marked improvements in some skippers sailing abilitie and the racing was excellent, and it was great to see Roger B who had already repaired the mower up at the farm , before joining in the series with His Lintel and in race six got a very good 5th place

Many thanks to the OOD’s and all helpers .

Well done to Darin for his win and also Rob W and Dave R for gettng on the podium . Results, and a couple of pics thanks Greg
