IOM 24th March Race 4

Nine competitors turned out to sail IOM class yachts. The weather appeared to be benign enough to support 'A' or top rigs. Gusty conditions and rain squalls arriving during the first race were soon to set the theme for the rest of the morning, thus giving 'B' rigged boats a distinct advantage as the breeze freshened.

Chris' course 'A' prevailed :- WZ/2 Start - (7-OB-Y-1) x 2 Fin' 4/Y.

Good show all, for providing some spectacular sailing.

Top 'Quarter-Wavers' :- 1st Place - RD #15, 2nd - TR #85, 3rd - CW #06.
