I.O.M Winter series Round Five 5th Dec 2021

Another windy day sailing on the South Bank, pretty dam cold, and a choice maybe of A suit or B suit, everybody except Tim H 44 went for B, and two of the first three races for Tim were his discards.

Rob W 97 with his Fraktal 2 and B rig took the first three bullets and then a second in the fourth, Stuart J 66 sailing his Lintel in Lintel weather did well and got a second in race three, the wind abated a tad from race four which allowed Tim H 44 to get a win and then it was coffee break, when all the hotshots changed to A suit, Coffee over and half the fleet stuck with B suit, it was still marginal but Tim H managed to win race 5 and the breeze came up a few knots allowing Mick C 165 in a borrowed boat to take the next win in race 6, the breeze stayed up and Chris E 74 won race 7 with Mick C in close company getting the 2nd place, and Dave R 57 who was sailing very consistently getting 3rd spot.

Rob W 97 continued his steady consistent racing as the wind got lighter and all those who stayed with B suit were just history as racing moved to the East bank for one last race, which was won by the ever improving Dave Rigby, Chris was second and Tim took third with countback from Dave, The racing as ever was sharp and competitive and I am sure a joy to watch. and ended in bright sunshine.

Many thanks to all helpers especially Greg and Peter for doing the finishing and scoring, Very well done to Rob for his win over 12 races and all skippers for the great atmosphere the racing was sailed in.

I.O.M’s racing at Eastbourne many thanks Sue Brown
