17 May 2015 – Third Sunday of the Month – Six Metre Day

Conditions

Mild, cloudy, wind Westerly force 3 to 4.

Those racing included: Odd, Grant, Hugh, Leslie, Jim and John, Richard was painting the clubhouse, and should be considered to have earned honours equivalent to first place in all races.

Odd was racing a Six Metre for the first time, but encountered teething problems with sheets periodically coming off his sail winch. Sailing conditions were affected by large marquees to the northwest of the pond, introducing wind shadows and degree of variability in wind direction. Sailors were intensely absorbed in the competition during the 11 races which were held.

Race 1: Hugh, Grant, Odd

Race 2: John, Grant, Jim

Race 3: Odd, John, Leslie
