IOM 2019 Event 1

Sunday, 26 May 2019

Allowing for the absence of notable absentees including Derek, eight of the fleet’s skippers were ‘blessed’ with an unseasonable howler of a westerly, not to mention intermittent rain.

As we use an average system the final result does not reveal three different skippers taking bullets with Mike Benson’s Britpop, not to mention John Plant gaining some excellent top three finishes with yours truly’s In-Transition.

Shaun suffered electrical gremlins which when eventually sorted saw him well up the fleet only to return and spoil his day.

It was good to see David back on the water if somewhat inhibited by his lack of mobility specially on the fast downwind run which proved more that interesting at the mark!

As you will see, Gordon enjoyed an excellent result with his new boat as opposed to Eric who could not compete until he acquires B and C rigs.

So, after sixteen races over an excellent full lake course, much deserved congrats to John Sharman who proves once again that the cream rises to the top.

Many thanks to Bob Jolly for taking the RO duties.

The next IOM club session is Wednesday the 19th June at 630pm and the second event is Sunday the 30th June at 10am.
