Members took a little time to turn up so although a lot of sailing went on, we did not start racing untill nearly noon. The weather started cloudy but continued to improve as the morning went on and by midday the sun was out. There was a brisk wind and the sixes were hard pressed at times and were almost at their limit in top suit, but it did make for some spirited racing. As we did not start racing till nearly noon we did not get many races in but we all enjoyed it.
Results were as follows, with Jim again being the one to beat.
Race 1. Jim, Derek, John T
Race 2. Jim, Derek, Ted
Race 3. Jim, Ted, Derek
Race 4. Jim, Grant, Derek
Race 5. Jim, Derek, Grant
Race 6. Jim, Derek, Allan
A good day,s racing.

I was a little disappointed to hear that after laying on a SOLING day on the 11th not many members turned up, not even the member who had asked specifically for it. Never mind, the SOLING day is now a fixture on the second Sunday in the month and we can only hope that members get used to it and that numbers increase in future. Derek.
