IOM Winter Scratch Round 5
The day started with 9 sailors greeted with a gentile northerly breeze which gradually built up to top of A rig at times.
Several sailors changed to B rig which was a mistake as the wind settled down. Some good racing and a good course set by our PRO Les who kept us under control.
Thanks, as always, to Les for your work as PRO today.
Clear winner today, was Mat Gray, on just 15 points - his two discards being 3rd places!!
Second today, by countback, was John Cole-Cook, on 27 points, edging out Michael Hickman in third with one extra win during the day.
On handicap, John Cole-Cook took out the honours, with 4 rank differential points. John Hall came second on 1 point, with Mat Gray and Martin Svenson taking third, with 0 rank diff points.
