A sunny top suit day met the six IOMs to Birkenhead’s tenth race in the club series.
With the wind coming out of the top right hand side of the lake, Race Officer Bernie set a windward / leeward course of two laps.
Martin Roberts sailing his new A2 design from Spain, had winch problems in race one but soon returned to put in a solid performance on its first outing. In between sorting his boat out, a few tips on starting were given to the assembled skippers and John Brierley having taken note, managed to win 8 of the 12 races completed with his Britpop. Chasing him hard were Bill Culshaw(1 win), and Martin(2 wins) with Lawrence Drennan, after winning race 1, edging out the two visitors John Berry and Steve Toulson.
