Mid-week IOM Winter Championship

Round 2 of the Mid-week IOM Winter Championship Series on Wednesday 11th January 2017. Whilst the wind was forecast to be 20 mph from the WNW on arrival at the lake it was about 10 mph primarily from the WSW. However, by the time racing started the wind had increased slightly and veered to WNW primarily and so twice round a windward/leeward course was set at the North end of the lake.

Skippers started on No.1 sails, but during the second beat the wind suddenly increased to the predicted 20 mph, such that only three boats finished the course. After some while all skippers decided it was advisable to change down to No. 2 sails with the wind varying in strength for the rest of the day, but skippers staying on No.2 sails.

Andy Seymour suffered from a loose rudder which he eventually tightened up and so after missing a number of races was able to join in again, until he started to take on water.

Whilst Colin Goodman and Vernon Appleton enjoyed an on going tussle at the front, at times John Newton was able to keep with them for a time but eventually lost out. With six wins, Colin Goodman was the overall winner on 10 points, followed by Vernon Appleton on 12 points, with John Newton third on 27 points from Malcolm Schaffer based  on count back.
