Eleven IOM’s fronted for today’s racing in cool conditions, with a basically westerly air stream in mid A rig conditions. Unusually for Montrose, the breeze was very intermittent with a moderate current and quite bumpy waves considering the lightish breeze.
Nine races were completed with a beat to the outer northern mark down to blue and red - 2 laps.
Just before lunch the breeze kicked in so the fleet returned for a rig change and a bite to eat.
After lunch the breeze started to abate which helped Justin as he was the only one to stick with his A rig and scored 4 wins for the day.
Rod M had 2 wins sailing his Corby 5 - next week we hope to see his new Red Ant woody on the water.
Ray & Chris were sailing very consistently with Chris flying a new set of his home made sails ( very nice).
A good days sailing which would have been enhanced with some sunshine.
Winners today, were David Jones, in first, with Ray Joyce and Justin Rogers tied for second. I believe this is Justin’s first podium finish for a day’s sailing. Well done Justin.
