Thirteen sailors came along for the second round of the winter series scratch today.
A very light NW breeze to start with, falling back to almost nothing at all by the end of the 9th race, calling the day a little short, which helped the set up for the AGM today.
Welcome today, to John Murrell and John Short, both sailing their first IOM Scratch day today. We do hope that you enjoyed the day and look forward to seeing you much more on Sundays.
Mathew Gray was dominant today, the Venti really sailing well under his control. A well deserved win today with just 11 points. Sailing almost equally as well,was Lisa Blackwood, in Second with 13 points.
Ray Joyce rounded out the top three with yet another great days sailing, with 22 points.
Thanks, as always to Les Hanson, doing the Pro work again for us.

We also held our AGM today. Minutes will be out to members very soon.
