Wooden IOM Boat Contest
A great event was held at Westhaven Radio Sailing for Wooden IOM's . The forecast was not looking good with heavy rain and 40 knots predicted. Lucky the forecasters were a bit off and we ended up sailing in No2 rigs with a few light showers. Conditions on the course were tricky with a confused sea state left over from the heavy weather the night before. 18 races were complete over the day and Rob Nelson came out on top using RNB sails. Looking forward to next years event

Sailing at Westhaven 26 May
RNB has been busy developing new shapes and these have been performing very well with a good win at the Keri Keri Club Championships over the weekend of the 21st & 22nd April. The sails are proving to be very good running downwind, along with holding their shape very well in the top of the rig range.
