17th June – 6M

Four of us turned up to race but there was a problem in that Rookery Road was closed off because of the London to Brighton bicycle ride. This meant that those that had come by car, Allan and Derek, had to search for a parking place. We both found a place but poor Allen was so far away he had not the energy to carry his boat to the Clubhouse. Derek was OK because his boat was stored in the Clubhouse. That left three of us to sail, Jim, Ted and Derek.  It was a fine day with a good breeze most of the time and we were able to sail our normal course.

To add a bit of variety to the day we changed boats in rotation so that each sailed an unfamiliar boat several times. We all had wins, although not always sailing our own boat. The most consistant boat on the day, with the most wins, was Jim,s RENAISSANCE which sailed very well, but having said that, if any of the boats happened to catch the wind right all put up a good performance. We sailed untill about 2pm and all expressed the view that we had had a good and enjoyable days sailing. Derek.
