Hamilton IOM 2 hour photos


Thanks Waikato Team. A most enjoyable day.

Many thanks


Hi everybody

Just a reminder that you can sail your Marblehead in the morning  as per usual fleet racing.

In the afternoon the IOM 2 hour race starts so try and stay around and have a go.

We will do our best to get you paired up.

If anybody can help Sharon with the scoring for the 2 hour race your assistance would be appreciated. Because of the length of the race it requires 2 people to make sure boats are

counted when going through the start finish and on the skipper swap things go smoothly.

If you can help in any way please let me know or Nigel.

Cheers  Mark
