IOM Sunday Club 1

For the first time in quite a while Fleetwood are holding a series of IOM club races to encourage the renewed interest in the IOM class.

5 boats turned out and had interesting insight into what constitutes a legal IOM hosted by uncle Derek with one eye on the upcoming IOM nationals at Fleetwood in August.

Sailing conditions looked grim at first with rain and no wind but gradually improved to sun and No 2 rig and wind straight down the lake.

With much boat swapping and a few breakdowns 13 races were sailed with Derek coming out on top 19 points, Gary 2nd 23 points, Tim 3rd 31 points, David 4th 33 points and Chris 5th 49 points.

A very enjoyable days racing.
