richard also sailed .conditions were from force 2 to zero  as usual most races were close with boats within four boat lengths or less .the pond is still deep enough for 1 meters just  but with little rain it may not be for long .so with a fleet of over eight solings with the close racing available its a pity that some members  will not race them . wednesday saw a group of travelers camp on the common they were removed within an hour but had the gate not been left open it would not have happened i always lock the gate on closing the club but the lock has been missing for two weeks we also have a group of rumanians  camping outside the club most nights when the weather settles we will be doing some maintenance to the weather boarding and fix some leaks in the front roof .

yours jim

Thank you Hugh. I tried phoning our Clubmate Alan Scarlett but the number appeared unobtainable. I know that they had been trying to move house and I thought that might be the reason so I sent Brenda, Alan,s wife, an Email and in reply she confirmed that they had indeed moved house. Our Secretary Jim Robinson has the new phone number and address. Brenda tells me that Alan is still in hospital and is not too well, so much so that she cannot have him at home as he needs so much looking after. It does seem a great shame as they have now moved into a bungalow to make life easier for both of them and now poor Alan cannot , as yet, take advantage of the move.  I have told Brenda that I will not phone again just yet but have promised to keep in touch. If any other Club member would like to phone Brenda I am sure she would appreciate it. Derek,
