IOM Handicap Race, 15/9/12

A small but keen fleet of IOM skippers turned up. Racing was close throughout the day with Dave Burke continuing his recent form to take out a strong win. The handicap concept proved its worth once again with more inexperienced skippers growing in confidence as the day went on. Thanks to Victoria and Neil who ran our race smoothly.

10 skippers arrived to a very light variable westerly wind which slowly shifted further to the SW over the day and increased in strength. Some close racing was had over the day. It was great to see young skipper Andrew Benson have a full days racing with Ernie rice kindly stepping in to perform the PRO duties and loaning his boat to Andrew. Well done Ernie.
