IOM Winter Series 3

Happy New Year and this was round 3 of the Birkenhead Winter Series and a lovely gentle top suit wind down the middle of the lake with plenty of shifts for all to anticipate, depend upon or hope for.
The early pace setter was Bill Culshaw with two wins and two second places in the first four races sailing immaculately, following him was Martin Roberts and Graham Elliott going into the tea break.
There were many close battles all day with not much love lost but no shouting, just good hard but fair sailing.
Noticeable results were Lawrence and Alan both gaining second places in races 5 and 6, well done, and after 9 races with 4 different race winners it was Graham Elliott who won the day with 5 wins.
Many thanks to Bernie and Dave for starting and finishing the fleet and Joyce for the half time cuppa.
