IOM Summer Series #2 19/6/21

A fleet of 12 IOM’s were met by a solid top suit breeze down the middle from the clubhouse end. It was to be a day of nose diving, wind shifts and boy there were a lot them. Brad started the afternoon with 2 wins with Graham getting 2  seconds. Bills new tactical masterplan of sailing fast came to the fore with wins in race 3 and 4. Neil had his best with a second in race 4. Brad dominated  the races either side of the break with 5 wins from the 7 sailed. Graham got a deserved win in race 8 with Andrea finding her recent form with a win in race 10. Peter was to win the final race with Dave Hollom  showing good speed with a 2nd.
Although Brad was the clear winner, a discard score of 15 showed what a hard days sailing it was. Graham was my sailor of the day with 8 top 3 places sailing his Widget. Bill showed a much improved race series performance with 8 top 4’s.
A big thank you to Bernie who was working without his usual sidekick. Was it because of this he set a new PB in general recalls ? An early Fathers day visit from Vicky sorted that out.
