Firstly, on behalf of the committee, I'd like to apologise to the sailors today. The timing of the start today got a bit mixed up and some turned up for a 10am start, with the remainder for an 11am start. The cause of this was that today was initially schedulled as a Long Distance Day and as such, started at 11am. After the DF95 nationals were cancelled, we allotted that Sunday as the Long Distance Day and shifted the DF95 day forward to today. All well and good, but we didn't change the original start time to our normal winter start. Apologies again, and all good for future weeks.
Now to today.
A good field of 11 skippers today, with Les Hanson able to have a sail for the first time in 18 months. Good to have you back on the water competing Les. In Les' absence with the Pro Duties, ken Dobbie stepped in and ran the day for us. Thanks for your help, Ken.
We got 12 races completed today, and looking at the results, we had seven of our eleven skippers sharing the spoils of individual victories.
In the end, David Jones was too consistent, taking the honours on the day with 25 points.
Second place was the ever consistent Mathew Gray, 4 points behind on 29.
Third place today - by countback - was Stuart Dawes, on 32 points.
On handicap today, we had Mathew Gray taking out top position with 5 rank diff points (seeded 7th and finishing 2nd). David Jones came in equal second with 4 rank diff points (seeded 5th and finishing 1st) along with Richard Fisher (seeded 10th and finishing 6th).
Wednesday is our usual IOM Mid Week Handicap, followed by RM Scratch next Sunday (at 10am)
