IOM November 11th 2022, Race 2.


Some great sailing today, with six stalwart skippers and a good, steady breeze across the lake. As results may show, boats were closely matched, with 80% of the fleet getting at least one 1st over the finish line, JB's 80 taking 30% of available wins. Breaking early, MC turned on a radio as time neared the 11th hour, so that skippers could respectfully observe a two minutes silence. Chris' course 'A' held good, allowing for eleven races total:

Start Y/WZ(ero) - 7 - OB - Y - 3 - 7 - OB - Y - WZ - 5/8 Fin'.

Today's victors:- 1st Place - JB #80, 2nd - MC #169, 3rd - JR #16.
