GMBC 2024 IOM Club Championship - Round 3
For the die-hard sailors who braved the miserable weather today - the wind came to the party, but the sun stayed hidden. It was freezing on-shore (beanies and gloves). Thanks to Lynn for scoring (and freezing her toes off for us). The fresh breeze took its toll, Basil sail torn, Nigel battery, Danie winch overwinder, and Brent winch blow-out. Well sailed Bruce.   Get full race results here
