A good fleet of 14 IOM’s fronted the starter for today's sailing.
Greeted with very light and sunny conditions that resulted in an early lunch whilst we waited for the sea breeze to slowly fill in.
After lunch, the sea breeze was mid A rig, but the breeze built quickly and soon, a general rig change was called with those going to B reaping the rewards.
77 and 02 stayed with A rig, which proved not to be a good choice.
Peter Germein was sailing his new Ellipsis woody (tuned up by Rod Jackman) very well.
We had a number of withdrawals with minor breakdowns, as the sea breeze reached its peak - continuing a run of very strong sea breezes this summer.
More sailing this weekend ( see Kyle's email for details)
PS Thanks to my wife who supplied a baked chocolate cake, which disappeared very quickly.
