IOM Spring Race 01: 3rd Mar 2020

IOM Spr 20 race 01

Spring arrived this morning, a gentle breeze and sunshine, wonderful compared to weather from previous weeks. The “tide” is still coming in, it lifted mark 5 and repositioned it near mark 6, not all bad as the new mark 5 gave us a pretty decent leeward mark.
Racing was interesting with much position changing, there were many “if only’s” exchanged as personal gusts collected boats and rocketed them from the rear to the front of the fleet. As has often happened John T managed to be in the pole position at the end of the race picking up three firsts and winning the day. Martin Hart, John M and Hugh also won races.
The sunshine also brought out new member, Brian, I look forwards to him joining us regularly.
