RM Summer Scratch Series Round 2
Extremely calm conditions today, with a slight northerly blowing. Would be lucky to have made 3 knots unfortunately.
Seven skippers turned up for an earlier than usual start, to make use of the much better tide from 10am. Something we will be doing into the future, especially with our Marbleheads.
Close racing ensued (as usual) with five winners across the eight races. By the end fo the eight though, the water had glassed right over and we made the wse call to finish up a little early. If we had started at 1pm, n racing would have been possible with the lack of wind, so the earlier start had a few benefits to it today.
Lisa Blackwood was our winner today. A couple of wins and finishing on 11 points.
Second, on countback, was in-form John Hall, just three behind Lisa, on 14. Edged out in third, with the same 14 points was Kyle Stewart.
On handicap today, John was our victor, with two net points, with Lisa and Rod both in second, on 1 net points.
Wednesday is out regular IOM Mid Week Handicap, and next weekend, we have a double header, with the Herb Tyson Memorial for A Class on Saturday, and the 42 degrees South Regatta for DF95's on Sunday. Official entries close today for these ranking events, so please get your entries in if you are sailing. We only have two in for the DF95's and three for the A Class, so both will lose their ranking status if we don't get six entries.
