IOM Yacht racing - Dickie Bird Trophy 2017

Sunday 29th October

Report & scores by Russ Chilcott,

6 skippers entered this years event on a bright and mostly sunny day. There was a pretty decent breeze coming in from the west which turned slightly northerly as the races progressed. Scott set a long course with Zig Zag back around the No3 marker and a second lap along a long sausage leg through No1 and a marker on the bank. All the skippers raced together taking it in turns to watch the start line, this allowed us to get in 16 races by 1.45pm.

Mike Cooke was in top form winning 11 of the 16 races once he was out in front he was not usually caught by anyone. He finished with a score of just 13 points. Andy was the best of the rest finishing in 2nd place on 31pts with Russ in 3rd on 34. There was a 3 way tie for 4th place with Rod, Ron and Scott all on 45 points, but Rod takes 4th spot on countback, Ron 5th and Scott left in 6th (last place).
