A mixed day today for our RM sailors. A good C rig breeze for the start of the day, with an amount of nasty squalls coming through regularly, culminating with an extreme one of torrential rain and about 40 knots as we were bringing the yachts in after the completion of the last race.
Eight sailors started the day, but unfortunately we had an amount of reliability issues and a few sailors have some work to do in order to be ready for the state championship in a months time. Good news for them at least, that they all know what they need to do in order to be ready for the championship.
We got 12 races in today, and they were all sailed in real good spirit, and mostly very closely competed. We did have a few races with some spectacular breakouts by the first few yachts as well.
At the end of the day, Stu Dawes was just too consistent, with four wins on the day, taking out first place with 22 points.
Following Stu in second place, was Ray Joyce, on 27 points. Wonderful consistncy with five 2nd places and a first.
Third today was Kyle Stewart, on 29 points.
On handicap today, Stu Dawes took out the daily double with 5 rank differential points (ranked 6, finishing 1st). John Hall took out second on 3 differential points (ranked 7th, finishing 4th) with ANdrew Wardrop in third with 2 differential points (ranked 8th, finishing 6th).
Wednesday will have the IOM Handicap returning to Montrose, followed by IOM Scratch next Sunday.
