With a good strong breeze primarily from the NW veering to NNW at times, the final round of the Spring Mid-week IOM Championship Series took place. The water level has increased yet again with no sign of weed at any time.
It was a windward/leeward course at the northern end of the lake, starting between marks 4 and 5, down to 1, up to Mark X, back to 1, up to X and finish between marks 5 and 6. With no issues for anybody and everybody completing all races, it was down to consistency as to who was going to be the overall winner on the day.
John Newton, Geoff Appleton and John Horsfield all had wins, but at the end of the day, John Newton was the overall winner with 10 points, followed by Geoff Appleton on 18 points and John Horsfield third on 21 points. Terry Wright continues to show improvement and it was only some tactical errors that prevented him doing better.
Being the final round, Graham Bartholomew is the overall winner of the Spring Mid-week IOM Championship Series on 6 points, followed by John Newton on 11 points and Geoff Appleton third on 20 points.
Round 1 of the Summer Mid-week IOM Championship Series will start on Wednesday 5th July 2017
