I.O.M Summer Series round 5, 6th June 2021
Wow, Great day at Scotland farm for round five , bit more breeze than forecast, and Pete W the OOD was quickly in the boat sorting bouys and a course which was tricky as the breeze was just west of north. Bit of a Zig Zag but the skippers picked it up quickly , 11 of them, and first out across the start line in front Was Chris E 74 getting a great start and holding the lead till the finish, Keith 88 was second but was a determined Skipper and must have had his weetabix as he went on to win 5 from eleven, Dave R 57 came out on the right side of a battle royal with Pete W that was in my view was decided on discards, thats the way it goes. but I have to say top racing between these three, and it was interesting watching, as I was to see how the racing in general has improved in standard all through the fleet at the club. The wins were shared by the top four skippers, in this event and there were some noticable skippers missing.
Radio Lincolnshire’s Radio van turned up just after 11am, our club being one of the clues in Pirates Gold which was good for the club and the second time we have been a part of the show, which helps put us and Radio Racing on the map around lincolnshire.
The clubs ” SCOTTO” was also drawn and both winners were not around to collect their winnings , Adrian also brought along a hanging basket to be auctioned and money raised goes into club funds £ 15.00 raised many thank young man.
Eleven races completed so well done to the OOD’s and all skippers who lent a hand , Congratulation to Keith on the day for some superb sailing and we shall look forward to seeing you all on the 20th June for round 6
