Mid-week IOM Championship Series

Round 5 of the Autumn Mid-week IOM Championship Series took place on a chilly Wednesday 8th November 2017, with a strong breeze primarily from the north north west.. As a consequence it was a windward/leeward course right at the northern end of the lake, starting between marks 5 and 6 with a beat to 2, downwind to X, a beat to 2, downwind to X and finishing between 4 and 5.

Several skippers suffered various issues throughout the day, with John Newton experiencing a snapped mainsail downhaul and eventually a broken jib swivel point; Terry Wright a battery failure; John Horsfield a snapped sheet and Geoff Hamilton a displaced jib.

As a consequence there were three skippers who had wins on the day, but John Newton with better consistency was the overall winner on 7 points followed by John Horsfield and Geoff Appleton on 12 points but John taking second based on his two first finishes.
