The Start!!

With a very promising 12 to 14 knot south easterly at the start a fast trip to Laxey was on the cards despite a beat to Maughold Head, but the wind began to die off from Cornaa onwards stringing out the 12 boat fleet, with the tail enders drifting across the finishline on the tide.

Congratulations to Angus Jolly who took the win in his first outing after being out with an injury, only 37 seconds behind on handicap was Peter Cope in second and Stuart Brew third.

The MS&CC Ramsey to Laxey dinghy race, it’s a challenge and not for the faint hearted! The race for the Green Cup is a coastal race with spectacular scenery if you have time to look!

Hosted by MS&CC the Le Mans type beach start is at 10.30 on Saturday 24 July.

Laxey Sailing Club are holding their Regatta on Sunday 25 July starting at 11.30. LSC Sailing Instructions can be found here

Winners of the IOM Copiers RTI Race 2021, James Walker (centre) with some of the crew of Lilee

Write-up by James Penn

The IOM Copiers Round The Island Yacht Race (RTI) last Sunday was won overall for the first time in three years by James Walker’s Corby 33, Lilee, racing in the performance based NHC handicap division.

With the 2020 race cancelled due to COVID 19, and the 2019 race not producing a finisher due to very light winds, it was gratifying that of the nine yachts that started the race at Ramsey seven managed to finish.

What was a perfect summer’s day for those on land was not ideal sailing weather for those at sea, although in the earlier part of the race – up to the Point of Ayre and then down the West Coast – Force 3 or 4 Southerly breezes were enough to keep the yachts going at a decent clip.

In a great return to summer dinghy regattas, Ramsey’s Manx Sailing and Cruising Club welcomed 16 dinghies to our 2021 Regatta with some challenging conditions in prospect.

The challenge on Saturday was launching, racing and recovering the boats in the fresh North-Easterly wind and its associated waves which were breaking heavily on the beach.  It was a definite case for helping your neighbour and watching out for the odd rogue breaker which always of course appears at a critical moment when you’re not watching.
