Sailing at Clapham on the 17th January.

Sailing, What sailing! . What a turnup. When we arrived on the 3rd we expected to find the pond frozen but it turned out not to be and we had a good sail. On the 17th we turned up expecting the pond to be clear and found it frozen, and quite thick too. This was a shame as quite a crowd turned up, eight of us. We all stood around waiting for the ice to melt but it was too thick, and even if we had been able to break it up to find clear water I feel the lumps of ice would have damaged the boats. Instead we retired to the Clubhouse and talked about boats, although I did get some work done on Duggies boat and was able to get the dent out of the hull and had also found a screw cover for the radio pot. There is still a problem with the radio gear, the arial has fractured as it leaves the receiver and I fear the rest of the wiring needs renewing, perhaps as a result of the dreaded “black wire” disease. However, the boat is all there and all it needs is a bit of tender loving care. It seems we now have three people who may be interested in buying it so Duggie could well be in funds again.
There being nothing else to report I will sign off. Derek.
