A solid A rig top end breeze today, mostly from the north, however a few times it went west and then for want of anything better to say, it went awol! A good time was had by all, with the weed again having some input into the finish positions. Les and Chris hooked up at the start of race 4 and sadly 19 sustained a damaged mast so was a spectator thereafter.
David Murfet took on the PRO duties today and we thank you kindly for keeping the day rolling. Ten races were held with six different skippers getting the gong. At times the finishing was very tight with places lost or gained after passing the gate buoys and the beat to the finish. Noticeable performance was Andrew with his 112 woody Corbie 5.
Overall it was most enjoyable close IOM racing at its best, and I’m sure the results will indicate just how close the racing was.
Thank you all for making the day.
Next Sunday it is the Long Distance Day, with Rod Jackman managing you all in my absence. Remember we are trialing set handicaps for the day, and Roddy (his call) can make an adjustment should a boat clearly require an adjustment after a number of races.
As no member has offered to take on the Rear Commodore role there will be no BBQ happening on the day, so please bring your own lunch.
