IOM Autumn Race 13: 26th Nov 2019
After a pretty bad forecast, we had a great day’s sailing. The rain held off and the sun did make a brief appearance. The strong southerly breeze gave us a good opportunity to blow the cobwebs off our B rigs, though I suspect at times A rigs would have been more effective.
Racing was close, Peter won the most races though finished forth overall. John Bennett won the day through making less mistakes than the rest of us and not going out on wings on the first beat, he also had good boat speed. John T, John M and Nigel also won races.
Congratulations must also go to John T for winning the Autumn series.
