Given this weekend is a long weekend, many decided to make use of it and travel about a bit. That said, we still had a good fleet of eight sailing today. Three major classes represented, with five IOM's, two RA and an RM sailing.
Sounds like the wind was a bit fickle today, with light A rig to Mid B rig conditions within a single race. Makes it very hard for the handicapper to get things right on the day. Les did quite well though, with the top six yachts within 9 points on the day.
John Hall was putting in a great day, with his Fuzzy Logic, until an issue sidelined him for a few races. Once back on the water though, he was right back up there with the leaders.
Lisa Blackwood took out third on the day, with the Sister Blister - with 18 points. Sailed quite well with the significant handicap, but suffered a minor demasting issue on the last race. Apparently there are steps in place to reconfigure the mast and install some jet thrusters just in time for the Herb Tyson Memorial in a bit over a months time.
Andrew Wardrop had a welcome return to the place winners dais, with 15 points. Sailing very consistently with the Trojan V.
Winning the round this week, was Ray Joyce. Three points further ahead, on 12. Continuing the form he had during the Australia Day weekend.
Wednesday is the regular IOM Handicap, starting at 11, followed by IOM Scratch next Sunday, from 1pm.
