IOM Mid Week handicap
In contrast to the excellent sailing conditions at the dam on Sunday, today was a bit challenging, with winds gusting in from all directions.
The fleet of eight started in A rig but quickly moved to B rig, which was sometimes right and sometimes wrong Perhaps the two skippers who stuck with A rig may have been right.
Added complications today was a number of heavy trucks using the road to deliver gravel to damaged part of the road.
The big holes in the breeze made sailing difficult, but Ray seemed to handle the conditions with ease.
Directly after lunch, we were informed that the dam was closing due to a severe weather warning, which is why only five races were held.
A gentle reminder for Scratch IOM on Sunday, again at the dam.
