An early start today to coincide with a more reasonable tide, and by the looks of it, was fortunate as well.
Very light winds kept everyone on their A Rigs, and by the conclusion of the 7th race, there was not enough wind left to continue.
A healthy field of eight sailors on the water today, interestingly, with eight different designs as well.
Good decision to close the day down, with the MBYC sailors stuck on the water for half an hour before they abandoned their racing as well for the day.
That said, we had a tie for first today, with Ray Joyce (12pts) edging out John Cole-Cook on countback, with Lisa Blackwood (17pts) in third. Rod Marshall keeping the top three honest, just 2 points behind Lisa.
We are three weeks out from the State RM Championship, and have attracted up to half a dozen interstate entries. If you are keen on sailing with the best talent in the country, get those entries in. It's sure to be a hotly contested and enjoyable championship. We plan to retreat to a nearby establishment for a meal and chat after sailing on Saturday for any people interested.
We are also on the lookout for helpers for the weekend. Help from being observer, start/finish calling and rescue boat operator/s would be very appreciated. Wednesday is the normal IOM Handicap from 10am. Next weekend will be a double header, with A Class racing on Saturday from 1pm and DF95 Scratch on Sunday, also from 1pm
