Racing for IOM and RM classes takes place on Sunday mornings starting at 10:00 sharp, with no race starting after 12:30. Separate Sundays are allocated for the different classes; we do not sail mixed fleets for racing.
Friday racing is for the IOM class only and starts promptly at 11:00 and finishes at or just after 14:00. Skippers normally get together after racing on Friday in a local venue for coffee.
A Wednesday evening IOM Series runs from the beginning of May until the clocks go back at the end of October. Racing starts at 6 p.m. and finishes 30 minutes before the gates close.
All racing is governed by the current version of ‘Racing Rules for Sailing’, supplemented by the MYA Standard Sailing Instructions where necessary. For each race, one or more skippers act as ‘Observers’ making sure that the rules are followed. This ensures fair and equal racing. See the ‘Things to Know’ section for further details
