One Metre sailing on the 1st June

Sunday 1 June – One Metre Day


Conditions – warm, cloudy wind South veering Southeast force 1-3. On the water the winds were very light and shifting constantly, sometimes circulating round the pond.


Sailors racing initially were Leslie, Odd and Hugh: taking it in turns to match race Leslie’s Isis, and Odd’s Nimbus 2. On occasion, Odd sailed the Isis, and Leslie the Nimbus 2.  This has reinforced Odd’s appetite for a less slow boat, he is checking out the marketplace, so watch this space for future developments.


Richard came to work on his One Metre, John came later and raced his Nimbus 3. We had 15 races, a good day’s racing , on the first official day of summer.


Race 1: Leslie, Odd

Race 2: Odd, Leslie

Race 3: Hugh, Odd

Apologies for these late results, been a very hectic working week. Regards, Hugh

I apologise for the delay in publishing Hugh,s report but I have got problems at home which have been taking up much of my time. I will try and do better next time.

I had a phone call on Monday from a chap named Nigel , a member of the Vintage Group, who was asking why the Long Pond was so fortunate in not having a weed problem, many other locations he sails at do have a bad weed problem. I said we thought it was because of the fish in the pond as this fact seems to have been confirmed by past experience. He was asking whether the Council had treated the water in some way, I said I thought not. I have given him Ian Boulton and Victor,s phone numbers so he can check for himself.

Make a note in your diary that the Vintage Group is scheduled to be at the pond on the 22nd June, it would be great if some of our Club members could be there to welcome them.  Derek.
