I.O.M. Racing April 8th

Once Chris and a couple of club members hauled ashore a fair sized, 20ft+ branch adjacent to mark #7, the rescue boat was duly launched for portage of a yacht that had strayed over to the reeds during trials. To make the most of the mission, bosun brought buoys # 8, 3 and 4 more in line with course arrangements:-

5/8 start -1 - 3 - Ob- zero - 3 - Ob - 4/Or finish. Ob = orange and black; Or = orange and red.

The light rain soon dried up and a tolerable, sailable breeze came in.

Although wind-shifts and penalty turns may have favoured a few, racing was close and

consistent sailing from front-runners meant that they were still able to slip ahead.

A technical hitch or three may have kept one or two yachts off the water;

thanks to both those skippers who helped with the scoring etc.,
