IOM February 17th Race 6

Nine out of ten boats and skippers stayed the course for prime 'A' or Top rig conditions.

A good WSW breeze from the start, gradually increasing through the morning enabled

nine races around a course:- Start OR/1 - 4 -7 -OB - OR - WZ - 4 - 7 - OB - OR - WZ - Fin' 4/Y (just SW of pier). A few close encounters on the water served as a caution to

allow plenty of 'sea-room', especially in gusty conditions.

Top Trio......1st Place - #15/ RD, 2nd - #80/ JB, 3rd - #06/ CW.
