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.

Unfortunately due the current pandemic and the fact that the Manx border is closed for the foreseeable future the IOM Copiers Round the Island Race 2020 has been cancelled.

Thank you to Mark Corrin for his continued support of this event, hopefully by 2021 we will be able to hold the event again.

The winning team!

The winning crew!

Jerry and Linda Colman’s Sigma 33 Sea-Pie of Cultra, sailing under the burgee of the Manx Sailing and Cruising Club in Ramsey, returned from the West Coast of Scotland on Sunday loaded with silverware having won their Class at West Highland Week with 3 wins and two second places to count, putting the yacht several points ahead of the next in Class. The crew, Juan Hendy, Simon Pressly, May Shiu Chan, Alex Daniel, Keith Hardisty and Jerry put together a slick performance despite never having sailed as a team before, indeed for 2 of the crew, this was their first Yachting Regatta.
