IOM 18th August 2018 – Results

Another great day’s sailing in the most difficult of wind directions, South East, this wind direction can make the best skippers in the World look like idiots at times.  13 skippers making the most of the final tune-up session before next week’s National Championships at Fleetwood.

The racing was extremely close at times with the chasing bunch bringing the wind in many races, blanket finishes of 4 boats within inches of each other was not uncommon.

The 6 races before tea were closely fought between John Brierley, Dave Potter and Graham Elliott with good results also being gained by Chris Chatfield scoring top 3 results in races 2 and 5.

After tea it was much the same story between the top 3,  but Bill Culshaw also started to mix it up with some great results and taking a win in the final race. Lawrence also had a very well deserved win in race 8.

Many thanks to Bernie and Joyce for running the race and supplying the tea at half time, Jack having a well deserved rest before he hits the tiles tonight.

Good luck to all members entered in next weekends IOM Nationals at Fleetwood.
