IOM Spring Race 03: 17th Mar 2020
The day was definitely coloured by the Government recommendations, re the corona virus. We chose today to keep our “social distance” and not share the timing and recording of the racing. It seemed to be a way forwards though i guess it should be kept under review.
On the positive side, the sun shone and we had a good breeze down the lake, or John T did anyway, he won the first four at a sprint while the rest of us found a number of holes in the wind. Fortunately John T’s luck did run out losing out up the last beat of the next two races – he then left allowing the rest of us to compete for the places.
We managed 11 races in all with John T winning 4, John M 3 and John B, Robin and Nigel winning 1. Yes, I did say Nigel! John M won the day followed by John B and Hugh.
