IOM ICA wish to congratulate MYA, West Kirby Sailing Club, their volunteers and the organizing committee for the great event we have just finished in West Kirby.

We would like also to congratulate Peter Stollery (GBR) and Brad Gibson (GBR) for their performance in all conditions of wind and waves and also for their demonstration of sportsmanship at a high level. With his consistent sailing throughout the week, Peter demonstrated that he is a worthy IOM World Champion.
