Mayoral Cup 2019

8 skippers today for the IOM Mayoral Cup. First order of business… bacon butties curtesy of the Parkingtons.

Next up, check the wind on the official Fleetwood Wind-o-Meter: Somewhere between Naff All and Proper Job, that’ll do.

Then the yachting… Grey start, 13 races, decent breeze, lots of shifts, lots of race winners. Holbeche consistent, others less so and a sunny end to the day.

I’ve had too many beers already, here’s a strange info graphic that describes the day…
