unday 6 October 2019 – One Metre Day

Conditions Mild, cloudy, wind force 3 to 4 generally north north-westerly.Those racing from time to time were: Leslie, Hugh and Jim.

The wind on the pond was coming across the clubhouse bank. Mostly the boats were overpowered on the limit of top rig and nearly uncontrollable at times. Unfortunately the two buoys on the clubhouse bank were blanketed locally: first by the clubhouse, for the starting buoy; and next, for the number one buoy, by a small tree to windward. When a boats became stalled at either of these marks they were left standing, and others slipped past to get a clear lead.

Note for next time with similar winds, shift the number one buoy clear of the windward obstruction of this small tree. Six races were held altogether, ended by a brief shower.

Results

Race 1: Jim, Leslie, Hugh

Race 2: Jim, Leslie, Hugh

Race 3: Jim, Hugh

Race 4: Leslie, Jim, Hugh
