Sea-Pie of Cultra, rounding the Point of Ayre on the way to winning the IOM Copiers Round the Island Race

Jerry Colman won the Coronation Cup in emphatic fashion in his boat Sea-Pie in the Round the Island Yacht Race on Sunday.  
In difficult conditions, with competitors having to beat into a strong south westerly all the way down the west coast, only one other boat completed the Manx Sailing and Cruising Club-organised race – Freya, skippered by André Midwood. 
Sea-Pie – a Sigma 33 boat – got off to a near-perfect start in blustery conditions at 9am and went straight into a lead it never forsook for the rest of the day.  Follow this link for the full report by James Penn - IOM Copiers Round the Island Race 2019
