Winter Series Race 6, 28/1/12

Round 6 proved frustrating at times for skippers with a very light NW breeze fading as the day went on. Racing was stopped after 7 races when the breeze faded to nothing with only one discard on the day. Thanks to PRO Dave Wayt who kept racing moving in difficult conditions with the assistance of Jack Turner.
Next is the penultimate round of the IOM Winter Series at Birkenhead on 11th February. Why not come and join us?

Winter Series Race 5, 14/1/12

Round 5 at Birkenhead saw a change in conditions to previous weeks with a return to A rigs for all skippers. 14 skippers, including 2 visitors, braved the sunny but frosty conditions for 10 heats. There was plenty of tight racing throughout the fleet with four skippers gaining heat wins and the evenness of the scores showing that the racing at Birkenhead is getting tighter by the week.
Why not come and join us for the next round on Saturday 28th January.
