21st September – Third Sunday of the Month – Six Metre Day



Sunny becoming cloudy, slightly cooler in north to northeast wind force 1 to 3.  On the pond the wind was very variable in speed and direction, needing close attention to react to the changes.


Racing were Grant, Hugh, Jim, John, Leslie and Ted. John was using a brown wooden boat which was slower than the others. Ted borrowed this boat and Grant’s at times. Hugh and Leslie alternated using the same boat. We sailed ten closely contested races.


The water level was rather low, but not a problem for the Sixes.
