IOM 1st April

Good to see all the boats perform to their best advantage, in extreme conditions. Chris' foresight to swap down to B suit may have helped pick up a place or two, certainly interesting to compare how both types of rig faired in the blows on the wind as well as off it.

Course: 5/Or-(1-3-7-Ob)x2-5/Ob.

Top deck players today: 1st Place - Rob D's #15; 2nd - Simon B's #73; 3rd - John B's # 80.
