Round Four I.O.M summer championship + Round four DF 95 summer series

Fantastic morning at Scotland Farm small turnout but quality all the way. First up 7 skippers contested the Championship , and with the wind in the North West the South bank was used. This bank is shallower than the East bank and at this time of the year weed growth can be a problem, I am happy to say that although there were one or two bits of Floaty nobody was adversely affected and on Inspection the weed growth seems to have receded. The wind was a good steady 10 knots allowing a rig to be used all morning but by the time the last race was sailed at 12 45 there was a bit of diving down wind. Results below With Mick Cooper taking it on countback with his 1st place in race 2 from Alan Newman . many thanks to Roger and Ed for sorting everything out for us and for the good humour on the South bank. The two different classes  seem to work well together with a minute between starts, keeping the fleets well seperated.

The DF 95 fleet had a new skipper Peter Webster, But it seems there is no holding back Alan Edgar, pretty new to sailing 12 months ago and with four wins from ten races !!!! gordon and Ivan will need to raise their games, Ed unfortunately had a burn out on his winch, and Peter W had some good results with a second and several thirds, well done to all for a great mornings racing.
