IOM 2nd September '22

Updated: Sep 3, 2022

Damp and mellow could be words to help describe the morning's weather.

Racing started on a line 5/8 - ('zero' - 4 -7 - OBlk ) x 2 Fin' 4/Yellow.

Simon and Linda brought a course board, most brought wet weather gear, and Chris,

after laying two extra race marks to complete the course set-up,

got our full attention to a story with a happy ending about one man and his boat. The breeze became gradually more subdued through the morning, although we managed to record results for six races by midday. Thank you to MC - "the man in the story" for turning out and

doing multiple start/ finish line duties!

Top trio today:- 1st Place - T.R. helming #85, 2nd - JB #80, 3rd - JR #16.
