Sailing at Clapham on 2nd November 2008

Hello everyone, my apologies for the gap in “blog” reports, the weather has been poor over the more recent meetings and very little racing has taken place. Today, 2nd Nov, was a little better in that we did get some racing in with a better than average attendance (6). We should have been racing the 1M,s but as not everyone had a 1M to race we chose to sail the SOLING,s, and by using the Club boat and borrowing Justin,s we all had a boat to sail and got on the water with a fleet of 6. We started a bit late, as is becoming all too usual I,m afraid, and with the wind almost non existant and races taking about 20 minutes or so we only got two races in before we broke for lunch. I regret I did not keep an accurate score sheet but Jim won them both I think, with Alan doing better than usual sailing the Club boat into second place with Ted in third. Racing was very leisurely to say the least, but even so was quite absorbing with much banter going on between the skippers. The wind continued very light after lunch and by common consent we called it a day. It was a shame about the wind as we had got a spendid fleet on the water, but it showed what can be done if members turn up.

Next race day is on the 16th Nov for 6m,s, with the AGM set for the 30th Nov at 11am in the Clubhouse. Please do, all of you, make a special effort to attend. I will be sending out letters during the current week to every Club member. See you all on the 16th, if you cannot make it then I hope to see you on the 30th. Derek.
