Light and testing conditions tonight
Despite the heatwave 10 skippers turned out. Faced with a virtually flat calm lake racing commenced albeit slowly. Five heats were completed a credit to all who sailed. Once again Mark Rose proved to be the skipper to beat and congratulations to Mark in taking fist place.
Another pleasant evening at the lake. The final event was won by Mark Rose who also took the series win. A special mention for Mike Benson who finished a creditable second. Well done to all who took part.

A perfect evening for sailing. 6 IOM,s turned out. Unfortunately Derek had battery problems in the early part of the race and could not continue. The race was won by Mark who also had problems. Leading in the 7th race lost connection just short of the winning line.
