Today’s healthy IOM fleet of 10 started racing in a cold northerly breeze in top of A rig on the course in front of the clubhouse. The 10 skippers present agreed to scratch racing today and 9 races were completed.
The strong early breeze slowly abated until just before lunch, when the breeze failed. But of course, as soon as the boats came ashore for lunch, the breeze picked up again.
After lunch the breeze swung more to the east and the slop flattened, making for some interesting course setting and racing. Good to see Phil Jackman sailing with his beautiful woody.
We had a visit from Rob Gavin on his Ebike. We haven't seen Rob for some months as he has unfortunately been battling with a cancer. He certainly has lost a lot of weight but now that he is back on his bike, I am sure recovery is on its way.
Just a reminder that on show day next week we will be holding the IOM Woody’s Cup, all woody's are of course welcome. As mentioned last week, DF95’s are also invited to sail as well, and if you don’t have either, then bring what you have got or give us a call and we’ll find something for you. We are planning a BBQ at the end of the Woody Cup, so come along and help us all enjoy hopefully the start of a new annual social tradition.
