Ten IOM Midland District skippers turned up to Leicestershire RYC, on a cool grey morning. The wind was playing nice and the host club were able to set their standard ‘A’ course. For those of you who do not know the venue it is in an old brick pit so the bottom is a long way down, making buoy movement almost impossible.
Eric Finley (PRO) called everyone together and explained about the venue and course and obviously we would run as a single fleet. The host club had a couple of members there to do the finish line etc, so thanks to them for their help all day. Racing was done as a pair of races run back to back, saving time getting the boats on and off the water, and even with a lunch break the team managed to get 17 races away before the finish time of 15:30.
The final results are here: IOMMDWCS 2019-2020 R3 Leicestershire RYC Results So congratulations go to Dorian Crease who was on his first visit to Leicestershire RYC and also the furthest travelled skipper coming up from his home club of Two Islands RYC.
