I.O.M Summer series, final round 12, 18th September 2022

Wow what a great mornings racing , 13 skippers got a real treat, Mike and Adrian set the course on the South bank and with the breeze starting out around 9 to 10 knots and gradually increasing to around 13/14 knots during the last race this was always going to be exciting. Darin B 98, came along with his daughter Penelope sailing Mums Britpop, and a rare appearance from Chis E 74 was always going to make it hot at the sharp end, and so it was, with Darin and Chris taking first and second inthe first two races with Mick C 46 taking third spot, race 3 had Darin taking the bullet, and the two Venti’s taking 2nd and 3rd a great result for Mick Cooper 39. and I have never seen a bigger grin on his face ,Dave R 57 who is leading the series had his worst three races, before clicking into gear in race 4 with a well deserved 2nd , Mick C 46 taking the bullet and Mike W 76 picking up 3rd spot, Racing was close all through the fleet, but it had to be the consistency card that needed playing, there may well have been the odd touch of green stuff that played a part but at the end of the morning did not affect the overalls, Racing flowed well and at coffee break we had a small course change that caught a few out at the gate, another fine win for Darin 98 made him unbeaten in the series. but the dogged ness of Dave R 57 means he could well have won the Summer series, Dave just got better as the series went on with his Vision,and it really is going well, Mick Cooper is also sailing very well and has improved dramatically in the last few races. Brit pops at the top again so well done to Darin and Chris, the rest of us need to make up ground to get near these two , but hey the winter series is just round the corner. Today I would say we were probably down 4/5 skippers, that I am sure will be back contesting it all at the start of October , Chris Graves , Pete Walters, Jen Hand , Rob Wilson , Keith Holmes, Roger Bowtle lets be having you guys,

Many thanks to all who made this a great mornings racing, at the end of the day I think we all had a lot of fun

D B winner on the day Day
