3rd June – IOM

Five intrepid souls turned up for the 1 Metre race. The weather was fine with light, almost non existant at times, winds for part of the time but relieved by frequent gusts which livened up the racing. We started racing our normal course but found the Clubhouse causing a wind shadow making progress very slow at times. Midway through the morning we changed the course to start at the far end of the pond and sailed virtually a square course with a dog leg on the final run to the finish. Seemed to work well. Almost everyone won a race, exept the Chaiman, and Allan had a good day sailing “Mandarin”. The slightly shorter course meant that we could get more races in and this seemed to please everyone. We attracted a possible new member, we shall see.  A good days sailing in spite of the light winds.
