IOM Winter Scratch Round 6
Ideal conditions today with mid- A rig conditions. Great to see a turnout of ten today - on a day previously not normally sailed. Shows we opened the day up for good reason.
Justin Rogers got to launch his new Ellipsis, but had a few teething issues. New winch going in to it this week and ready to sail again on the next IOM day. We also welcomed a new IOM sailor, with his new 2nd hand K2. I have not got your name yet, but welcome to the club, and we hope you enjoyed the day. Certainly enough hopefully to join the ranks regularly soon.
Anyway, Lisa Blackwood was the standout performer today on 20 points. Second, was Ray Joyce - enjoying a welcome return to good form - with 28 points, with Michael Hckman just one point further behind in third.
On handicap, Ray eclipsed all others with a 5 point difference between his seeding and actual places to win by quite a margin. John Hall came in second, with a 1 point difference, while Lisa Blackwood, Stuart Dawes, Mathew Gray and Justiin Rogers all came in together in third place with their event position and event seeding positions the same (0 points).
Wednesday is a return to IOM Handicap at the dam and next Sunday will see the DF95's on the water for their scratch day.
