IOM Spring Race 02: 10th Mar 2020

IOM Spr 20 race 02

Hi All, another blustery day this morning. Watching the black squalls on the pond we made a joint decision to sail with our B rigs. Though  wind did moderate a little, the B rigs proved quite effective, they kept us moving through the lulls and limited the intensity of nose dives and broaches when gusts hit.
Racing was again close, made interesting  on the beat by a choice of whether to go for the starboard wind bend in lighter air on the right of the course or the extra breeze on the left hand side. Both ways could come out top. John M won the day with 4 bullets, John T second with one first and Peter third with 3 firsts.
