Mid-week IOM Championship Series (21/09/16)

Wednesday 21st September was a warm, partly cloudy day for the final round of the Summer Mid-week IOM Championship Series.The wind was variable both in direction and strength veering from NE to SE and from very light to a strong breeze. This necessitated a starboard rounding course for the first races, changing to a port rounding at the northern end of the lake, then changing again to a port rounding course in the middle/north end of the lake after an early lunch.

Unfortunately Geoff Appleton and Peter Herbert had a coming together which locked their keels and then got stranded on the most northerly mark, requiring the rescue boat to disentangle them. This of course led to them missing the last four races.

Graham Bartholomew had an excellent day with 8 wins out of ten, whilst Vernon Appleton was not his normal self and seem to struggle at times, before having to leave early. As a consequence, Graham was the overall winner on 8 points, followed by John newton on 24 points and John Lambert third on 27 points.
