Island Sailing Club Tuesday Evening Series - Race 2

by Tony Taylor, Race Officer 25 Apr 2018 10:45 BST 24 April 2018

It was a stormy evening for the second ISC Tuesday evening race. With winds of over 25 knots and misty conditions the decision was taken to cancel all the dayboats leaving just classes 1, 2 and 3 to race.

19 yachts braved the strong winds and turned out for the start. Courses were kept short so that crews could get back to the warmth of the club and enjoy the meal deal special. All yachts finished before 8 pm with only one retirement.

Following a lively beat back from the East the first Class 1 boat across the line was TILT Racing however she was beaten on corrected time by Adam Ridett in Challenger a First 40.7.

In Class 2 Meow took line honours and held his position after handicaps were applied. In Class 3 the two Sonatas Kallista and Xantz fought it out to a close finish with Xantz Mike Tennant taking first place.

Provisional results can be found on the notice board and ISC website
