IOM Scratch Winter Series Round 5
A cold, but fine morning greeted the nine IOM sailors at the dam today. Light to very light wind made rig changes unnecessary for the day. Some very close racing by most of the sailors – as shown by just five points blanketing fourth to 8th place, but the standout for the day, and an example of absolute consistency was Mike Hickman, who dominated with 9 net points from the ten races, but also had discards of just two and three points. Congrats to Rod Jackman, coming second (23 points) closedly followed by Ray Joyce (26 points) for taking out the minor placings.
Most skippers had errors through the day, and it was great to see the penalties completed without fuss.
Thanks also to those who turned up that little bit earlier to set up the day for everyone, and those who also stayed behind to help pack up. Many hands make light work.
Just two rounds left of the Winter Series, and things are very tight on the leaderboard, with just two points separating first from fourth!
Next sail day is Wednesday 25th July with Mid-Week Handicap, followed by next Sunday 29th July with RM Scratch Winter Round 4.
