Racing on Sunday was for 1 M,s and produced some good close results. The weather was almost the last of the Indian Summer and was very sunny and hot, but fortunately with quite a nice breeze.
We had the pleasure of having Mark Dicks with us, and more so as he had brought a new venture with him, an RG65, a sort of half size one metre. As I understood from Mark this has been a popular racing design for many years in South America and is only recently making an appearence in this country. The boat produced by Mark is his own design to this formula and as I said above it looks like a half size one metre, but with a fin almost the same size. It sailed very well and was very quick as can be seen from Hugh,s racing report.
I was at the meeting but left early and so once again I must thank Hugh for the results , which are as follows-

Race 1. John, Derek, Leslie
Race 2. Leslie, Grant Chris
Race 3. Derek, Chris, Grant
Race 4. Hugh, Leslie, Grant
Race 5. Leslie, Derek, Grant
Race 6. Grant, Leslie, Chris
Race 7. Leslie, Chris, Grant
Race 8. Grant, John, Leslie
Race 9. John, Chris, Fred (it,s that man again)
Race 10. Leslie, John, Chris
Mark was also racing his RG65 design, which in spite of being considerably shorter than the One Metre, was first over the line many times.”
I look forward to seeing you all on the 16th October. Derek.
