Last evening I had the following message from Colin Walton.
I am cancelling the IOM Midlands race on Sunday 14th October at Manor Park.
Following the extremely full racing calendar at Eastbourne and Lincoln the previous weekends and other events, there have only been five entries for the Final Midlands Race of the Summer series this Sunday.
After a discussion with Graham Whalley and Gordon Sears we will either reschedule or move the Mac Colyer Trophy event to the first Midland District Winter Champion Skipper IOM event at Bournville on Sunday 11th November. Mick Chamberlain is the current holder.
This will also avoid any concerns over the severe storm Helene blowing in this weekend.
Apologies to those who have entered for cancelling what would have been a stimulating day’s racing using the smaller suits of sails at an excellent stretch of water. I have tried to give a reasonable amount of notice.
Manor Park Secretary and PRO.
