IOM Mid Week Handicap
I thought today we would get a low fleet turnout after a tiring weekend of sailing, but 13 keen skippers turned up for the racing.
Unfortunately 15 didn't even get wet as a result of a rudder servo failure and 74 had electrical issues, so Paul swapped to the club boat 67.
Good to see Paul Jewell and John Banks back sailing and sailing well. John’s Noux was showing excellent boat speed in the light conditions after lunch.
We started with B rigs in a reducing northerly breeze, until lunch, where we changed to A rigs.
Ray forgot his A rig, so gracefully retired after lunch.
Notable performers were Stu Dawes 64, Rod Marshall 51 and the always consistent Phil Jackman 07.
Racing was abandoned after race 7, when the water glassed out .
An excellent days sailing.
