IOM 2017 Winter Series #1

14 competitors turned up for the first race of the winter series, including visitors from Scotland and Fleetwood, and were greeted with a good breeze straight down the lake, testing the limits of the number 1 rigs.

Unfortunately, 2 suffered gear failures even before the start so we only had 12 starters.

Nine races were held with the last completed in fading wind and light!

DF65 Autumn Series #16 15th Nov 2017

Nine sailors arrived to find a flat calm lake but very slight wind. One was unable to withstand the pressure of sailing in light winds and opted to be Race Officer! (Dave W)

A short course was set and one race held. A decision was made to have a cup of tea and to see what happened with the wind. Thirty minutes later a course was set away from the clubhouse and 7 more races were held with slightly more wind available.

IOM Series 3, Race 6 Results (28/10/17)

A good turnout with the return of a few faces for the final round of the final summer series for the season. Plenty of tight racing at the front end with Brad not having things his own way. Victoria sailed well for second, scoring a couple of race wins, with Emilio, Alan and Mike all scoring good results in the gusty on limit B rig conditions. Martin started well and faded as the day wore on and Lawrence showed plenty of promise for the future as he gets to grips with his new boat.
Thanks to Bernie and Bill for officiating.

Next week is the STREBOR Open for IOMs with a 10am start with a strong number of skippers expected. Make sure to get your entry to Graham Elliott if you are joining us.

Plenty of good racing coming up with the UK’s premier winter series at the club so if you are looking for good racing against some of the countries best skippers put the dates on this website listed in your diary.
