I.O.M Winter series round 5, 8th January 2023

It seems an age since we had these fantastic boats out for some serious racing, but here we were 12 skippers greeted by fabulous weather conditions, top suit all the way , great breeze from the South , enabling three long beats. fast from the start was Tim H 44 closely followed home by Pete W 65 , with Jen H 69 taking third, It is amazing that with 12 skippers we had 9 different designs, Numbers were down a bit but the quality was evident and the battle for the top three places was should I say “fierce” with no quarter given or expected, Pete W 65 showed his class by winning 7 from the 11 races , Tim H 44 knows he can do better, and Dave R 57 the same , Mick C 46 did not have a great day retiring with a damaged rudder in race 10 Jen H 69 had a good consistant set of number’s and Stuart J 66 caught my eye especially with a perfectly timed port tack start and another great race in race 10 .

Colin H 54 first time out with the squiggle improved towards the end , you will see more from Colin I promise you, Mike W 74 and Kevin E 20 are improving week on week , and Mick Cooper 39 was just not at the races today , far too much Xmas pudding.

A great day of racing and the rain held off , Well done to all the helpers and especially well done to Pete W 65 for the win, The next round could be very exciting , don’t miss it . 22nd January .
