IOM Winter Series 3, 5/1/13

Round 3 of the Birkenhead IOM Winter Series was a total of 22 skippers arrive for what can only be described as light to drifting conditions. Due to such light conditions it was decided to run with one fleet where only 5 races in total were completed, with race 6 abandoned. After 5 scoring raced and one drop, consistent good sailing from Dave Burke saw him take out the day with a total of 8 points. We had skippers travel from as far as Guildford and Oxford for the day which continues to show the attraction of top level racing at Birkenhead each week.
