IOM Yacht Match Racing (part 2) - 16th October 2016

Scores & report by Russ Chilcott

8 skippers entered the event with everyone racing each other that meant a total of 28 races had to be run! But with 2 or 3 pairs out racing at a time things moved along nicely in a decent SW breeze and bright sunshine - is it really mid-Oct?
Richard set the early pace winning his opening 4 races and was leading the 5th but then just lost out to Alan coming through on starboard right on the finish line.
As it turned out the event result was not decided until the very last race when Nigel and Alan were the only two left to face each other with both tied at the top having not been beaten. The race itself was very close until the last leg when Nigel pulled away (a bit of weed on Alan's rudder didn't help him!) to win the race and win the event.
Well done to Nigel - he seems to like racing at Apex this year!


IOM Yacht Match Racing - Sunday 5th June

Scores & report by Russ Chilcott

Unfortunately there were only 5 entries for the Match Racing event on 5th June and very little wind. Due to the low numbers we decided each skipper would race each other twice so a total of 20 races were run.

Richard Aucott was the events clear winner only being beaten once he won easily on a score of 9 points. Scott Smart and Russ Chilcott tied for 2nd place on 12 points each but Scott takes 2nd place on countback – he had beaten Russ both times in their head-to-head races.
