IOM Winter Series No. 4

Sunday, 8th March 2020

First and foremost, we are grateful to Bob Jolly for taking on the Race Officer duties, not to mention him gaining some good results when taking the helm in a couple of races.

On a personal level (and I am sure that amongst others) I am also grateful to Mike Parkington for his Britpop set-up expertise and to Derek for assisting us all with his input in getting various boats ship-shape and race worthy!

It seems that this winter is less than kind with the weather and although the sixteen races were not in rain and a storm, the direction and the gusts proved to be more than a challenge and the day ended with us all on a B rig.

As you will see from the results there were five different skippers taking a bullet and close racing throughout the fleet.

The final event of this series is this coming Sunday the 15th March – and don’t miss the IOM Mayoral Cup which is an Open event the following Sunday – both 10am starts.
