I.O.M Summer Series round Three 15th May 2022

Another great morning at Lincoln, 15 skippers of all ages including two visitors from Manor Park, Tracy B 49 and Colin W 03 turned out on a beautiful May morning, wall to wall sunshine and a nice 5 to 10 knot breeze from the South East, OOD Dave R 57 had no hesitation in laying the course on the South bank with three great beats. The new sturdy Windex poles from Mick C 39 made laying the line correctly far easier and all starts got away clean.

Mick C 46 stormed away in the first race with his Venti and was never troubled, Darin B 98 with his Brit Pop took second and Pete W 65 took third Spot. A young chap called Tony did the finish line for us with Allan taking over from race 6. so many thanks to them.

Pete W 65 took the second race from local hero Tim H 44 and Darin B pulling third , there was to be a battle all morning between Darin B 98 and Pete W 65 with Dave R 57 getting some good results to stay in touch and it could have been a lot closer had Dave just had to concentrate on his racing without being OOD on the day. There were some great battles up and down the fleet and the two visitors were at the end tied on points with Tracy B 49 taking it on countback with her fabulous 2nd place in heat 5 .

Interesting to see three different designs in the top three, and I can see this battle going on to the very end of the series, This series at Lincoln is very well supported by the club skipper and today we were probably at least 4 skippers down and two at least who would have a shout in the top 5 positions, so long may that continue, The behaviour on the bank was exemplary, and it was a pleasure to be a part of it.

Many congratulations to Darin B for taking the top step and the other two guys on the podium .

Also many thanks to the OOD and the many helpers .

If you find yourself reading this post, and maybe are a dingy sailor, but are just a bit curios about radio sailing, maybe your knees are taking a bit of a hit , Pop along to Lincoln any Sunday morning and somebody will be sure to let you have a go. You never know it may just change your life.
