Six IOM skippers sailed six races in light SW breezes this morning.

Course: OB/OR -7-WZ-4-7-WZ- 8/OB.

Getting away at marks #4 and 7 was tricky; the near shore offered the better opportunities for closing with the fleet leaders.

Top on points:- 1st Place - #30 CS; 2nd - #06 CW; 3rd - #16 JR.

8 skippers attended Lakeside for the 4th round of the May-Jun series. Both the occasional rain and the wind were light and in the latter case very variable. Chris set a course of B/A, P, 0, B, P, 0, B/Q and 8 heats were held. Places changed almost anywhere as the wind changed and some finishes were very tight whilst others strung out.

The podium today is:

1st - J Bennett (7)

2nd - J Richardson (14)

3rd - M Harcourt (18)

Congratulations to them and to all who endured the fickle wind.

Best wishes

A light and variable South-east breeze helped seven skippers sail seven races over a lengthy course 'A':


                Start BO/OR -P-wz-4-P-wz-3-P Fin' 8/OB.

Helmsmen were focused on trimming sails to catch the maximum air, with legs from the start to P, #'s 4 and 3 to P, and the final home stretch seeing the most change of yacht positions. Good to see "ex-44" on the water for the first time after her re-fit. During the break, Derek presented crews with a fresh example of his home-baking in the form of fruit cake.

Top trio on points:- 1st Place - #59(63) IW; 2nd - #85 TR; 3rd # 16 JR
