6M sailing at Clapham on the 21st August

August 24, 2011 at 5:06 pm | Posted in News | 2 Comments

I regret I have not been at recent meetings for one reason or another. The reason for last Sunday,s absence was because I went to a meeting of the local power boat club. I took Duggie,s trawler along in the hope I might get a possible sale valuation. The concensus opinion was that 80 pounds might be possible, and that a good option would be to take it along to the Model Dockyard shop at Chatham which undertakes to sell customers boats on a commission basis. That seemed a good idea and I have been to Chatham today and left the boat there at a required net sale price of 80 pounds. We shall now have to wait for a result (unless some-one reads this blog and rushes forward with a higher offer!)
In my absence Hugh has again come up trumps and has provided the following report.
I do note that I am not the only one who has been absent from meetings, or at least has not sailed. Perhaps we should talk about this at a meeting in the not to distant future.
Anyway, here is the report.
“Sunny day. Southwest wind, force 1 to 3. Close racing, everone scored a first at sometime.
Race 1. Leslie, Hugh, Grant
Race 2. Leslie, Grant, Hugh
Race 3. Hugh, Leslie, Grant
Race 4. Fred (I shall have to charge him a membership fee!) Grant, Leslie
Race 5. Grant, Hugh, Leslie
Race 6. Grant, Hugh, Leslie
Race 7. Hugh, Leslie, Grant
Race 8. Hugh, Grant, Leslie
As I said earlier, a pretty limited field. We must try to do better.
See you all on the 4th September. Derek.

    • Hi Fred, don,t be to smug, I shall demand a membership fee next time we meet at the club. I think the fee should be something special, certainly in excess of the 20 pounds charged to ordinary members so come prepared. Regards, Derek.
