In From Tim Lanigan of the Fleetwood MYPBC
10 competitors turned out today for the IOM Mayoral Cup at Fleetwood (which is 10 more than the same event last year) and were rewarded with blue skies, mares tails, sunshine and a nice bit of wind for our troubles.
Our PRO for the day, Eric Watkinson, made the best of the Easterly wind and set a long course with a beat into that flukey corner near the clubhouse that can be both a blessing or a curse depending on how it treats you. A-Rigs were the order of the day with some solid gusts to keep you on your toes downwind. There were plenty of nasty windshifts and dirty great holes to contend with but then I would say that having found most of them during the morning races 🙂
