IOM December 2nd '22 Race 5

A great turnout of eight competitors.

Two skippers helmed different boats to usual, one by choice, the other by circumstance.

Sail numbers remain unchanged for the purposes of series scoring etc.

Chris W had anticipated a diagonal start line early on in course planning. Two crew planted three race marks: Yellow(Y), Orange/Black(OB ), Orange/ Red(OR).

Hence:- Start 7/Y -4-7-OB-OR-4-7-OB- Fin' 3/ OR..

The very useful, yet shifting breeze at times offered advantages to tail-enders as well as setbacks for front-runners.

A Virtual Triple Ripple of recognition to:- 1st Place - #15 RD, 2nd - JB #80, 3rd - CW #6.
