IOM Mid Week Handicap
Today’s sailing was a frustrating affair in light and variable conditions (again), which boxed the compass. The course had to be changed often by PRO, John Banks, who did a great job in trying to keep on top of the wind variations.
Despite only 3 handicap races being completed before an early lunch, another 5 were completed after lunch. Rod J launched his new V10, which has been prepared in his usually meticulous manner and as expected, showed excellent boat speed.
The mid week co-ordinators bottle of wine prize was awarded to the PRO for a sterling effort today.
On another yacht related topic, an amount of RBRYC sailors have “second” yachts that are for sale, both IOM’s and Marbleheads. I personally know of at least four IOM’s and three RM’s ready to go to their next home’s. If you are interested, or know anyone that could be interested in a new 2nd hand yacht, let me know and I’ll put you/them on to the respective owners. With some yachts available locally, it is a fantastic opportunity to introduce some new sailors to the sport and to RBRYC hopefully.
