IOM Racing 7th April 2023

Updated: Apr 8, 2023

Seven skippers sailed in brilliant Spring sunshine today. The breezes were gentle enough for

a shorter-than-usual course, keeping the south end of the lake clear for some advanced

watersports instruction:- Start 6/ OR - (2 - 5 - OR) x 2, Fin' 2/ WZ. In spite of periodic

lulls in the breeze, boats managed to complete seven scored races in just over the two

hour period which also included a short break.

A trio of virtual 'catspaws' to three top scorers:-

1st Place - #63 RD, 2nd - #03 RH, and 3rd - #80 JB.
