3 IOM's & 4 DF95's contested today's regatta in a reasonably consistent light air. Sadly Dave Crane wasn't able to sail due to the weed fouling his long keel.
Despite the obvious differences, the 95's pushed the IOM's surprisingly hard, even taking a couple of race wins. with the final scores not really reflecting the closeness of the racing throughout day.
Huge thank you to Dave Marsham for scoring all weekend, as well as everyone who supported this weekends events & helped with the setting up & packing away. Well done to Brain in taking the overall win today.
10 skippers contested today's regatta on a frustratingly calm day. After a delayed start, enough breeze blew up to start racing, although a large slice of luck, as well as skill, was needed to make any way in a race with the ever unpredictable wind. Fortunately, the sun came out & with it the wind picked up a little, making the later races a little more interesting.
In all we managed 12 races, with Angela dominated the day, only finishing out of the top 3 in one race where she suffered a fouled keel. The fight for 2nd, 3rd & 4th was really tight, with new member Andy Ince putting in a great performance in his first regatta.
Thank you to all who supported the event with good humour, despite the poor conditions.
The 3rd round of the Club 500's took place yesterday, with 10 skippers braving the cold weather.
All boats were run in one heat, resulting in some close fast racing, with a little bit of carnage and several boats ending up upside down, fun was had by all.
Congratulations to Pete for another win followed by Jamie, Colin, Glenn and Brian.
Thank you to all the people who took part in the frostbite scale regatta today.
Here are the results, Well done to all.
