Sunshine and warm light winds greeted the 34 competitors for day 1 of the IOM Veterans National Championships. With the wind destined to get even lighter as the day went on and some significant shifts proving challenging for the fleet .
Phil Playle dominated the day gaining 3 firsts and 3 seconds from the 9 races sailed.
With the promise of more sunshine, higher temperatures and more wind tomorrow we look set for a great conclusion to the event.
