Sailing at Claphasm on the 1st August.

August 2, 2010 at 9:31 am | Posted in News | 1 Comment

A fine bright day at Clapham with a good breeze.
We were scheduled to race the 1M,s but the water was low due to lack of rain and so the choice was between the 6M,s and the SOLING,s. As all of us had a 6M and two did not have a SOLING, I took the decision that we would race the 6M,s. Just as well, as I had brought a 1M but because of the parking restrictions in Rookery Road due to the railway replacement bus service parking there, I had to park a little way away and I did not want to carry the boat and all it,s gear across the Common. We started reasonably early and managed seven races before lunch and three after, more than our usual number. Results are as follows.
Race 1. Hugh, Jim, Derek
Race 2. Hugh, Derek, John
Race 3. Hugh, Derek, Jim
Race 4. Hugh, Jim, John
race 5. Jim, Derek, Alan
race 6. Jim, Grant, John
Race 7. Derek, Ted, John
Race 8. Derek, John, Ted
Race 9. Grant, John, Ted
Race 10. Ted, Derek, John
For those members who want to race the SOLING,s, remember that the second Sunday in the month has been designated a SOLING day and so I would expect a good fleet on the water on the 8th August. I might see you there. Derek.
