We welcomed another new skipper to the club this morning: Trevor, sail 64. That’s now endless J’s, 3 D’s, 2 T’s, 2 O’s, 2 P’s: come on K, R and B!

It was a fair to middling wind this morning – hardly consistent (strength, direction) but enough of it to have some decent sailing and racing.

First course – here goes: 2 / inner blue, 5s, Bp, 6s, 8s, 1s, 4s, A/C. Luckily we ended up with an easier one of 7/ 8 , 3, 2, 8, 3, 2,8,blues.

We will need some chief deputy assistant race officers to step up over the next few weeks – Peter and I are variously away. It’s not difficult completing the results sheets – or setting the course – well not always!

Thanks in advance.

IOM’s next 2 Sundays and of course Friday, J’ s etc Tuesday.
