Sailing day at Clapham on 1st November.

As I write this it is brilliant sunshine and calm winds outside, but this is Monday!
The sailing day yesterday was horrible. Heavy winds and pouring rain. Very few turned up (5) , and while Hugh was ready to sail the others thought it too wet and windy. As a sailing day it was a non starter and we all left the pond early. Hopefully the next meeting date, the 15th November, will be much better for the 6M,s. Talking of 6M,s, having had a look at Hugh,s new boat we have noticed that it has two rudders!, one in the conventional place at the back of the boat but another at the rear edge of the fin, both appearing to be controllable independently. This must surely be an advantage and might allow the boat to sail closer to the wind. I assume this is within the rules as the boat is said to have highly placed in competion. Perhaps we shall now see the Club,s fleet similarly uodated?
I have set the Club,s AGM for the last Sunday in November, the 29th at 11am. Hope to see you all there. Derek.
