Start line with Peter Cope in the Waspz next to eventual winner Simon Pressly

IOM Copiers Easter Regatta took place in Ramsey Bay hosted by Manx Sailing & Cruising Club.  As usual, the sun was shining with a brisk southerly breeze which may have been a little too much for some, but no worries for those who kept up the practice at West Baldwin during the winter.

The fleet was mixed with the extremes of dinghy performance clearly on show with the Cope brothers, Jimmy in the Tera and big brother Peter in a foiling Waszp (is it even a boat?)

The three races were over the same windward/leeward (up and downwind) course and after a minor delay, patrol boat assisting a competitor with gear failure racing started. Follow this link for the full report – IOM Copiers Easter Regatta 2024
