Sunny, windy and the wind straight down the lake, were the conditions that met sixteen sailors for the DF65 racing today. B rig was the rig of choice, but which at times was over powering in the gusts. RO for the day John Brierley set the course over the full length of the lake and the starting line was extremely competitive with many competitors wanting to get to the clubhouse bank first and gain an advantage. Alan Watkinson continued his form from Saturday, to run out the winner with Dave Williams close behind. Competition was keen for the other podium position, with John Carlin edging out Richard Robinson by the end.

Next Saturday (22/1/22) is the 3rd race in the Winter Series for the RG and DF65, with a start time 1200hrs. Visitors always welcome – please enter via the upcoming events link.
A bright afternoon with the wind from the clubhouse end, met the six competitors in the second IOM Winter series. Alan Watkinson started of strongly with a win and continued to show he had set a perfect trim.
Martin Roberts then got into his stride with 3 wins with the other competitors close behind in the variable but generally stable wind. Charles Legg was having problems with a borrowed boat leaking badly, his new K2 should solve that problem. Bill Culshaw and John Berry were also in the mix at times, then John Brierley managed two wins to round off the six races sailed before tea break. When the competitors came out for the afternoon session, there was – nothing. The wind had disappeared completely and RO Dave Williams after consulting the sailors called time on the days proceedings. Thanks go to Dave and Bernie along with Jack for running the afternoons racing.
Martin Roberts Vanilla 7 pts 3 wins
18 sailors arrived expecting a decent wind, but it was not to be until the last few races. Malcolm our OD set us off on a course using all the marks on the lake which was interesting, but unfortunately took 30 mins to complete. In addition, during this race the wind direction unfortunately changed 180 degrees making it very difficult to identify positions on the finish line.
A series of short races followed, making it then possible to manage 9 races. Thanks again to Malcolm running the races under difficult conditions.
