IOM Mid Week Handicap
As predicted, light winds today oscillating between north & south with some westerly slants.
A rigs all day with a number of course changes and a few very light patches, but the boats were never becalmed - putting a premium on keeping them moving.
The fleet of 13 achieved 10 races, and when the sun came out about midday and the temperature rose, the sailing was excellent.
Not sure who was starring - certainly not me as I had a number of seniors moments trying to sail the correct courses (ed – think again Andrew….). Did have one race chasing Peter Turner sailing an older design which just sailed away from me. Peter (Goat) is a very experienced sailor who with a bit more familiarity with the IOM will be a real force to be reckoned with.
John Banks again was PRO so thanks for his efforts. Our run of excellent sailing at Montrose this winter has continued its run.
