IOM Winter Series W9 6 Feb 2019

Eight Skippers took to the water, a good breeze of around 9kts coming from the SW and fairly consistent for the duration of the event. 10 races of two laps were completed in an anticlockwise direction, the start gate between marks 3 & 4, heading to windward mark 1, a reach to mark 2 then a run to the gate of the leeward marks 3 & 4 with the finish between the flags.
Gate 3 was the most popular, but occasionally with a slight wind shift, gate 4 was able to offer an advantage for those prepared to take the risk.
Congratulations to John for winning the day and Peter and Kevin with a very close 2nd & 3rd

Overall an excellent days sailing.
Thanks to Steve for the course ( I think ) and Barbara for recording the results.
