Sunday 9th February was IOM Club Championship H2 and was ideal for two excited owners launching their new boats.
Roger Paul recently took delivery of his new K2 from SailboatRC while Peter Buchanan took delivery of his V11 from Ian Vickers and immediately they were making a charge at the top end of the fleet.
While we started in a shifty ESE breeze it steadily shifted to the south with the fleet eventually opting for B rigs. Both Roger & Peter had their new boats up and going and although later they had some teething problems (as you would expect with a new boat) at the end of the day they finished with some great results.
Winner for the day was Sean Wallis closely followed by Edgar Vitte with Ian Sherriff third.
