Big fleet for 2nd July 2022 IOM Club Championship Ht 5

It was great to see a fleet of 22 boats on the water (17 x IOMs and 5 x DF95s) for a relatively calm and typically fickle-winded day at Jackadder. We were pleased to be joined by a few of the Maylands sailors, primarily because the forecast NE winds are not good for their location. As it turned out, the afternoon at Jackadder produced as much frustration, with only a few races of light wind, the remainder of the eight being drifters.

The above images portray the nature of the day, light NE winds varying to almost no wind but experience and trim saw the top skippers continually edge to the front of the fleet. Glenn Dawson took the chocolates with Edgar Vitte and Brent Field finishing out the podium.
