15 March 2015 – Third Sunday of the Month – Six Metre Day



Cloudy, cool, occasional drizzly showers. Wind East north East, force 2 to 3.


Hugh, Richard, John and Jim came and raced. Richard borrowed Hugh’s boat which is very sensitive on the steering needing constant helm if it is not to go off course. I spite of this difficulty  he managed to score a second place. 9 races were completed.



Race 1: Jim, Hugh, John

Race 2: Jim, John, Richard

Race 3: Hugh, Jim, John

Race 4: Jim, John, Richard

Race 5: John, Richard, Jim

Race 6: Jim, John, Richard

Race 7: Jim, Hugh, John

Race 8: Jim, John, Hugh

Race 9: Hugh, Jim, John



Thanks for the report Hugh. Will members please note that the Vintage Group will be at Clapham on the 22nd March and it would be nice if some of our members could be there to lend support. There are three more VG meetings scheduled for later in the year and I will advise you in later blogs at the time. Derek.

Thanks for the report Jim, it is nice to see that my boat has been given an outing. The racing seems to have been very close, but having said that I note that Jim was very successful but with John and Leslie not that far behind.  I have been trying to get a response from the Vintage Group as to whether they might be sailing at Clapham in March but with no reply so far. I have received a note of dates later in the year and will include those dates in future blogs.  I am still having problems with my eyes and I doubt whether I shall get to Clapham in the forsee able future.  Happy sailing to you all. Derek.
