Long Distance Handicap
Eleven skippers sailed today - another good turnout. Light winds early, freshening with a nice sea breeze by around 1pm.
Sounds like it was a very enjoyable day on the new course.
Interesting seeing 6 of the 11 skippers taking a win.
Rod Jackman came away with the win today, on 21 points, followed closely by Mat Gray on 23 points in second, on countback to Ray Joyce in third.
Wednesday is the regular IOM Handicap, starting at 11, followed by IOM Scratch next Sunday, from 1pm.
There was also sailing today at Puddleduck, for the Annual Peter Smith memorial trophy. Hotly contested with 10 sailors. Lisa Blackwood, Phil Jackman and Phil Turnbull represented from RBRYC. All three sailors had a a fantastic days sailing. Phil Turnbull finishing 5th overall, Phil Jackman a very well deserved 3rd and Lisa successfully defended her title to make it three in a row, albeit with just 1 point margin this year. Congratulations to Lisa, Phil and Phil on your efforts today, both with the on-water results, and the fantastic representation of RBRYC. With any luck, this great event will continue into the future.
From reports passed on about the Peter Smith Memorial day. It was an extremely well run day and congratulations should go to all the organisers on the day.
