IOM Mid Week Handicap
A good fleet of 17 IOM’s at the dam today for our usual day of an hour of scratch racing followed by the handicap series. Water levels have fallen again which means it is wise to keep away from the bank as the weed is more exposed. Of course a few people did not heed the warning & found the weed easily.
The fleet started the day in a mix of A & B rigs in gusty & very cold northerly conditions but fairly quickly all changed to B rigs. Course was set from the start at 5-6 to 7-8 then to 2 & the finish through the start. We didn't use mark 1 as it is a bit close to the weed bank. Had a visit from 2 members from the Kawana club who we met at the AWBF, one of them is the developer of the handicap system that we now use.
Rod J clearly won the majority of the scratch racing & Kyle will no doubt come up the results from the handicap series.
Many thanks to John Banks for again undertaking the PRO duties & running a tight series. Also thanks to Peter & Chris for collection & return of the dinghy.
A good day.
