6M sailing on the 20th July

July 21, 2008 at 10:07 am | Posted in News | Leave a comment

Only the faithful four turned up on a breezy day when the wind strength was strong in the gusts with the 6M,s just being able to cope. We had some good racing with the boats close together and making a fine sight, almost on the plane running before the wind at times. Racing was very close with Jim perhaps being the most successful skipper, but he was hard pressed by the others. We started racing late and so did not get too many races in (5) but the first, second and third in each race were (1) Jim, Alan, Derek. (2) Derek, Alan, Ted. (3) Jim, Ted, Derek. (4) Derek, Ted, Jim. (5) Jim, Derek, Ted. As can be seen, the racing was very close in the brisk winds, the boats themselves being in close company much of the time. A good days sailing. Next scheduled meeting is on the 3rd August when we shall be sailing the 1M,s and expecting much from Alan with his new boat. Derek.
