IOM Summer Scratch Series Round 5
A great day was had by most today on the new course at MBYC, now located back where the nationals were held. Ample opportunity to make course changes with wind changes now exists for us with both windward marks and lee marks being four wide, so we can again chose two of the four based on the wind for the race.
Thanks to the people who came out on Saturday morning to move the buoys to the new location. It really helped set up a successful sail day today.
Unfortunately, I wasn’t there to see it all unfold, but the impression at the end of the day when I did get there was very positive.
The racing on the day certainly did not disappoint, and a quick glance at the results sheet showed a very close and competitive day overall. Mike Hickman won the day overall, with 15 points from the nine races. Returning member, Stuart Dawes (welcome back Stu) came in second with his borrowed Cheinz (thanks Les) on 18 points, and we had a three way tie for third, with Ray Joyce winning the third spot on 20 points, on countback to Wayne Behrens and Lisa Blackwood.
Again, it showed the close, competitive nature of the fleet, especially amongst those who were able to complete every race without issue.
