IOM at Lough Money 26/01/14

Several BWWMBC members attended the latest round of the North/South winter series 2013 on Lough Money on Sunday 26th Jan 2014. Bill was doind OOD (Officer of the Day), helped by Wayne, while Brian was competing against members from the East Down and Fermanagh clubs. No one from South of the border travelled up to this round.

Brian was testing out his new boat, (Goth), but was handicapped from the start by only having a C suit of sails ready to use. Everyone else was on B suits. Wind was coming in over the hill, so the best winds varied across the lough depending on wind strength. The skill was in spotting the wind shifts and going with them. Neil & his V6 was out in front in most races, but Graeme with his own design/built model was always pushing him, as was Brian despite his handicap! Ernie Foster was over from Spain and using a borrowed boa, (Brian's Stealth), had a creditable mid table finish. After 15 races the results are below.

Final Results:
