2024 MYA Scottish District Wooden Hull IOM Championship (23rd March 2024, Paisley) – report and results

A very healthy entry of 16 skippers attended this event with six being first timers. There were seven Scottish clubs represented with eight skippers who travelled from NE Scotland (Aberdeen & Tayside), three from East of Scotland (Kinghorn and Levenhall) and five from the West of Scotland (Ayr Bay, Greenock and Paisley). A fantastic array of various designs showing beautiful craftsmanship were present from the popular Corbie and Buzz designs to the Alternative and Ska from the Brad Gibson stable. A Fatboy and the Equus were the remaining designs. The attendance of new skippers to the event and such an array of skilfully built boats is a testament to the health and interest in these beautiful and highly competitive wooden hull IOM’s.

The wind was westerly blowing 11-17mph and gusting 26mph. This is an unusual direction for Paisley but the RO managed to set a windward-leeward course albeit with three relatively short beats. This proved to be fair, competitive and very challenging for the skippers who had to deal with both light patches and some very strong gusts.

Final results showed that there were only 8 points between 3rd place and 9th place – very close racing indeed! Top 3 positions were:
1st  Steve Taylor       10pts
2nd Brian Summers   17pts
3rd Malcolm Worsley  27pts

A great event, well organised – many thanks to the race team.
