June 9 – from Bill Penney
No racing today due to clouds over the mountain, initially, followed by typical island drizzle which guaranteed cancellation.
So had a lazy day during which our hostess took us for tour around some less touristy parts of the island one of which was a prehistoric gravesite at the southern most part of the island. Imagine steady soft rain, a steady wind off the Irish Sea and about 50 bikers who had got there before us! She then drove us to Castletown the old capital of the island from whence we took an ancient steam train back to Port Erin our home base.
We’re told racing is on tomorrow so must get to bed… early start.
