IOM 9th September '22

Course "B" - Y/5 Start - (W - 3 - 7 - OB 'wing') x 2 - W/OB 'Fin'.

Five go racing metre yachts, and it was blowy, gusty - from the North as well as from the South, as the baffled breeze found its way around the trees. A smattering of rain heralded the final race as the the leading boats went into the one minute start with everything to play for, as results may show.

Today, a lesson in avoiding sharp boat fittings above the waterline, and a twitchy rudder servo if you know how.

Top trio marks go to - 1st Place - JB #80, 2nd - CW #6, 3rd - MT #96.
