IOM Summer Series #7 23/10/21

A Southerly wind, with large holes near the clubhouse end, met the five competitors for the IOM race #7. Because of the nature of the conditions the racing was extremely tight with Bill Culshaw getting the worst luck of all. Competitors throughout the afternoon, often leading and then falling into an area of no wind. Alan Watkinson was constantly challenging and managed two race wins. With ten races completed the result for the afternoon was decided in the last fifteen metres of the final race when John Brierley and Dave Hollom fell into one of those flat spots and Graham Birkett skilfully sailed past to take a well deserved win. Thanks again to Bernie and Jack for running the racing. A thoroughly enjoyable afternoons sailing in difficult conditions.
