IOM Autumn Race 02, 12 Sept 2023
Firstly, welcome back to Alan, fortunately he remembered his boat this week – good to see you on the water Alan.
I found sailing most frustrating today, the gentle southerly came in fits and starts. It was one of those days that the leading boat could arrive at the windward mark and catch a zephyr and sail away well clear of the fleet or alternatively sit in a flat calm with the fleet sailing past on both sides. For me it was the latter, I must have used up all my luck last week. John T, however, continued on from his previous weeks performance winning 4 of the 9 races and winning the day, with Hugh second and Robin third.
