IOM Scratch Summer Series Round 1
A great turnout of thirteen sailors today.
Wonderful conditions by the looks of it , with a good B rig breeze when I popped in for a look.
It did seem though, that the conditions caught a few yachts off guard, and some reliability issues had taken some sailors out during the day.
Great to see Mat Grey there today, sailing very well with his nice new Venti. A very fast yacht in the hands of a very good skipper.
Dominating today's racing, was Ray Joyce, with a really consistent day - out in front with 20 points from the ten races.
Second place was John Cole-Cook on 27 points, showing the Topico is still as competitive as ever.
David Jones rounded out the top three, with 28 points - right on John's heels.
Wednesday is our regular IOM Handicap, from 10am, with RM Scratch Summer Series Round 1 next week.
As previously sent out, we are having an Australia Day Long Weekend sail weekend, with the normal scheduled Long Distance sailing on Sunday 24th, followed by a DF95 sail day on Monday 25th and then the RBRYC Australia Day Regatta day on Tuesday. We have a few northern visitors coming down for a sail on Sunday and Tuesday, so it would be fantastic to see a good turnout over the long weekend. We are planning on doing our 2020 presentations during that weekend as well, so come along, enjoy some great sailing and help celebrate the successes from a very "different" 2020.
