IOM Mid Week Handicap
Another great day of racing at Montrose today with a fantastic fleet of 17 IOM’s sailing in a mid A rig northerly breeze.
A mix of long and short courses, with boat handling and avoiding entanglements often being the deciding factor.
We had a Spanish guest sailing the club boat very well under Ray's careful guidance with the expectation that Romsey will be sailing with us for the next year.
John Murrell has purchased Darc’s Britpop, and he was also sailing. Also heard that a sister ship to JCC & Mat's Italian built IOM’s has been ordered, so the IOM fleet is expanding again.
Congrats this week, to Chris Wood, sailing his Corby 5 very well, winning the day on 27 points. Phil Jackman was just four points behind in second spot, with John Hall taking out third, just one point behind Phil. Ray also sailed very well to take out fourth, on 39 points, given he was also helping Romsey
As usual, thanks to John Short's PRO efforts - not easy running a fleet of 17. Hopefully John will be sailing his own boat shortly.
This Sunday, we have the return of scratch racing, with the RM Summer Scratch Series Round 3, starting at 1pm.
We will be holding our Annual AGM in early May. It is a good time now to have a think about whether you might like to join the committee in some way, shape or form. Many of our committee members ahve been in their positions for a number of years now, and it is always good to get some people with fresh eyes and ideas on to the committee. Some of the current members are looking at stepping back or changing roles, so any new interest is welcomed. Please contact any of the committee if you would like to get some information on what time commitments and responsibilities come with being on the committee. There could be some expansion of roles in order to share the loads more effectively. Your help will surely be very welcomed, and it would be a exciting thing, in my opinion, being part of shaping this club into the future.
