21 February 2016 – Third Sunday of the Month – Six Metre Day

 

Conditions

Very mild, cloudy, wind west southwest force 4 to 6.

 

The conditions were similar to the One Metre Day, 2 weeks ago, when racers had changed down to middle rig.

However, the Six Metres did not have reduced sails, and the wind in the gusts was too much for sailing with full rig.

 

Leslie tried out his newly acquired 6 Metre, a Revival design, but with the full rig she was overpowered in the gusts, and occasionally thrown down onto her beam ends. It was not sensible to continue, so after a brief check out that the gear was working, he retired from the day’s sailing.

 

Also present during the day were Jim, Hugh, John and Richard.
