Island Sailing Club Tuesday Evening Series - Race 6

by Tony Taylor, Race Officer 23 May 14:21 BST 25 April 2018

This was our sixth race of the series and the end of the first mini-series. The sun was shining temperatures high and a northerly wind of 12 to 15 knots, this combined with a Spring tide meant that our courses had to be in a northerly direction which had the additional benefit of keeping the whole fleet in view throughout the racing.

Our highest number of competitors turned out 59 in all. The 16 boat fleet in Class One was led home by the Dutch J111 'Sweeny' M Van Driel but was pushed into second place on handicap by Chris Preston in his J109 Jubilee, and further down in the IRC Tandem scoring. In Class two Joie de Vivre sailed to victory with Dabra taking second place.

Claire Turner continued her winning streak in Party Hat in Class 3 closely followed by Mike Tennant in Xantz. With the Flying Fifteens and the XODs the only classes whose course were shortened and only two retirements a good evenings racing was enjoyed by all.
