More news from North of the Border…….
Report by Gordon Allison
The Scottish District IOM Championships and Travellers 2 event were held at Castle Semple Lochwinnoch on Saturday 11th Sunday and 12th May. Paisley Model Yacht Club were the hosts of the event and an entry of 25 was expected. Boat failures and the prospect of getting truly soaked due to the horrible weather meant a few skippers called off.
The skippers arrived for registration / measuring early on Saturday morning only to be greeted with a strong breeze and heavy rain. Not the weather expected in May! Race Officer Gordon Allison gathered skippers for briefing and set a windward, leeward course with a leeward gate. The skippers were divided into two seeding fleets to establish A & B fleet racing throughout the day.
