A great fleet of 8 turned up today. Unfortunately, the wind didn't get the memo about the earlier start due to the low tide in the afternoon.
This made sailing quite difficult in the circumstances, but everyone worked hard to get what they could out of the races. Some really close battles througout though, which really added to the enjoyment - including a fantastically close finish in the last race between myself and Andrew Wardrop, who got over the finish line by a bumper only.
After four races, and with mirror like conditions on the water, we called lunch and unfortunately did not get back on the water.
After most of the skippers left, a few hung around a bit longer and watched the MBYC sailors. What started as just watching the start for 5 minutes or so, ended up being around an hour, with some fantastic sailing by the guys out there. It was really enjoyable to watch.
This coming Wednesday is IOM Handicap, from 11am at MBYC, and next weekends sailing is Long Distance Round 3, starting at 11am.
