IOM Mid Week Handicap
At 9 am this morning, there was a solid northerly. But, by the time we started at 11, A rigs were the go and we had a number of races prior to lunch in quite light conditions. However, two races before lunch saw a sudden southerly change where boats were spinning and overwhelmed.
Stu Dawes had his new Goth sailing quite well, but as with any one off boat, more development time will be needed.
An excellent fleet of 14 changed down to B rigs for the post lunch racing, with Stu joining John Banks as PRO - thanks to both.
Winner today, was John Cole-Cook on 17 points, again very hard to beat with his Topico. Andrew Wardrop came in second, on 22 points on countback to Wayne Behrens. John Hall, hot on their heels, just one point back in fourth. Nice close racing.
A great day again at Montrose
