Fleet strung out across Ramsey Bay

Write up by Jerry Colman, Commodore

22 boats from all round the Island gathered over the glorious weekend of 22 & 23 June to compete for the MS&CC’s Daily Mirror Trophy which is presented to the winning boat over a series of 6 races. Old salts may recall that the Daily Mirror supported the design and marketing of the ubiquitous Mirror Dinghy designed by Barry Bucknell and Jack Holt in 1963. We’re proud to have been presented with a trophy by such an august organisation.

The forecast was for light to moderate Westerlies or North Westerlies on the Saturday then very light North Westerlies turning to South Easterlies at around noon on Sunday. Sunshine was predicted and the sea state would be slight or calm.
