IOM 1st December'23 Race 5

Four stalwart sailors turned out to race their metre boats this fine, crispy December morning. The breeze held steady for the fleet to complete eight races, including a short break at 11 a.m. A friendly robin completed the group by perching close by: once on the flag pole while it was being set up and later, during a race, upon Ian's crown!

Course 'A', saw some close, tactical racing:-

Start 4/ OR - 2 x (White - 3 - OB) Fin' 4/ OR.

1st Place - #06 CW; 2nd - #15 JR; 3rd - #53 JS.
