As part of Emsworth Slipper Sailing Club's Centenary Celebrations, Emsworth Radio Sailing ran an IOM regatta last Saturday. A beautiful early autumn day with warm sunshine and gentle breeze greeted the competitors. Consistency was the order of the day, with some exciting racing,

culminating in local skipper Hugh Watson with his ex Titch Summers Scottish championship winning Britpop taking the overall winners prize.

It would be inspiring for other clubs to send reorts of their IOM events to me malcolm.appleton@gmail.com for inclusion on the IOMGBR website - i look forward to receiving them.

However, it didn’t really turn out like that - travelling conditions were relatively good, the wind direction had enough west in it to enable a good course to be laid with the only downside being fairly constant rain through the morning session ...the complete opposite of the weather on the Hampshire coast!........Read the full report here
