Island Sailing Club Tuesday Evening Series - Race 8

by Rod Nicholls, Race Officer 6 Jun 14:19 BST 5 June 2018

With the wind varying from NE to N all six fleets managed to get at least one good beat and then a reach or run back to the line with an ebb tide running all evening.

In Class 2, Phil Wright led the fleet home first for another win on handicap.

Class 3 saw Chris Halewood in Kallista also lead his fleet back to Cowes and save his time on handicap. Barry Byham in his Sonar chalked up another first place.

Week 8 saw all the Flying fifteens out for the first time with Mark Hart taking his first win of the season.
