IOM Club Championship 8, 25/8/12

Lovely NW breeze gusting from 6-12 knots blowing straight down the middle of the lake made for some fantastic A rig racing. From Martin and Brad fighting hard at the top didn’t have things their own way with Rob McIntosh, Graham Birkett and Richard Hampson always in the mix. A convincing race win in heat 9 after a change to B rig saw Bill Culshaw also top off a fine day’s racing.
Next week sees Marblehead racing at the club.
