IOM Summer 2023 #1 (20/5/23)

A sunny start to the day with a very light breeze from the Clubhouse end. Racing commenced soon after 1.00pm with a guest from Kendal joining in with a boat he had just collected from Martin.

Another welcome club member Andrea joined us with her main objective to beat Martin. After two leisurely races the wind increased and swung 180 degrees, the new course seemed to suit everyone with very close racing and four different race winners. The only downside of the day was with the amount of debris floating down the lake with the wind change with some boats being affected more than others.

Thanks to Dave for running the racing and to Bernie manning the canteen providing welcome drinks. After 12 races the results were:

  1. Martin Roberts     17pts 6 wins
  2. Andrea Roberts    19pts 3 wins
  3. Alan Bennett         23pts 2 wins
  4. John Berry              34pts 1 win
  5. Alan Watkinson   42pts
