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.
