IOM Social racing #4 18/7/20

Another excellent afternoon sailing for the IOM with the maximum number of only 6 boats permitted at the moment.  Ten races were sailed with race wins shared between Martin, John and Bill.  The wind was out of the top right hand corner with the new growth of trees causing interesting wind patterns .

Six races were sailed before a short break and with one discard applied Bill had a narrow lead. Graham with his Widget and Alan in a Britpop were putting in good scores along with Lawrence having a few near misses on the finishing line.

Four more races were sailed after the break with John missing race 7 repairing his boat and Martin took full advantage to narrowly win that race from Bill.  John came back to win races 8 and 9 but it was Martins experience that took race 10 and the overall win.  Only two points separated the top three at the end.  Alan came back well after the break with 3 thirds but again 4th and 5th were also separated by one point.  Some close racing throughout the fleet.

Thanks to Bernie and Jack for running the afternoon. It felt like old times with Jack back.
