In from the Met & Southern Racing Sec
Hampton Court today hosted round 1 of the M&S District IOM Championships. The event was very well organised by Laurie Bower and run by PRO Colin Trower. 26 skippers from 12 different clubs competed in the first of districts 4 rounds. The wind was a north easterly coming straight down the lake a little shifty but was variable form top of No 1 Rig to top of No 2 rig giving skippers food for thought on what to sail with.
8 Round were completed with 2 fleets so 16 heats were completed.
Colin Goodman won with 6 points discarding a 1st and a 2nd position to win the day, Ken Binks was 2nd on 18 points and Trevor Binks was 3rd on 20 points.
Home ground skipper Dave Andrews was 4th only a point behind Trevor Binks such was the close nature of todays racing
Thank You Hampton Court for a very well run and enjoyable event
