A nice breeze welcomed the RBRYC sailors as they arrived for the opening of the MBYC sailing calendar. RBRYC was well represented and we had some speeches by MBYC Commodore and RBRYC Committee Member Rod Marshall, followed by the official opening speech by club patron Adriana Taylor. A BBQ lunch followed, which was enjoyed by all. Unfortunately, as we were eating lunch, the breeze we had decided to go to lunch as well.
It was great to see David Murfet and Peter Sylvester on deck today, not yet racing, but along to support both yacht clubs. It really was good to see you guys.
We soon got to the water after lunch and had just two races before we called a small break to wait for some more wind to arrive. It did return, albeit quite a light one. It soon shifted from the North West to a southerly sea breeze, but still very light. We only got six races in before time was called at 4pm.
Mike Hickman again was the standout performer on the day, with three wins in the six races. A score of 8 for the day easily took out first place, with John Cole-Cook second on 21 points and David jones taking out 3rd on 21 points.
At the end of the day, there were some discussion around structuring the DF95’s possibly every few weeks at MBYC from around 10am through till lunch at 12, then resuming at 1pm for the IOM/RM classes as per normal. If there is enough interest for this, we can easily put this in to place with enough support from our membership.
