Mid-week IOM Championship (21/06/2017)

Round 12 and the final round of the Spring Mid-week IOM Championship Series took place on Wednesday 21st June 2017. The wind had returned to Coalhouse Fort with a very strong breeze (12 – 14 mph) primarily from the NE veering to ENE at times, producing some excellent racing.

Unfortunately there was only three members able to take advantage of this, as Geoff Appleton had transmitter problems and so was not able to start. Graham Bartholomew seems to have now become well acquainted with his new boat and so won 8 out of the 9 races. Our new member Terry Wright is beginning to learn about his boat and the art of sailing. It was a windward/leeward course starting between marks 10 and 11, up to mark 9, down to mark 13, up to mark 9, down to mark 13 and finish between marks 11 and 12.

Graham was the overall winner on 7 points, followed by John Newton on 13 points and Terry third on 20 points.
