Very still conditions greeted the 11 initial starters at the dam. So light in fact, that there was an hour and a half delay before any sailing commenced. The sailors all broke out into an early lunch and members meeting while they waited.
Topics such as the RBRYC Strategic Plan, upcoming AGM, DF95 sailing were discussed. If any members that could not make it today would like to know a bit more, email or call me and I'll fill you in on the details I know.
Back to racing, and Led Hanson started in a blaze of glory, and after the first race, the newest member to the IOM club, an indie built by yours truly finally hit the water for the first time. A long, long night spent trying to get everything right. A successful first launch, with the yacht sitting in the water as designed a good first step. Now, just to get it tuned up a bit.
But, back to racing - Les maintained his momentum, with at fantastically consistent day, with two wins and a drop of just 4 points from the five races sailed. A truly deserving winner on the day. Peter Darcey, similarly consistent took out second place, two points behind Les, on 9, and John Hall, the first of the RM's today, finished third, on 11 points.
This coming Wednesday is the March installment of the DF95 Handicap racing, and we then have a break next weekend with the 8hr Day Long Weekend.
