18 december 2016  third sunday of the month .six meter race

conditions

cloudy.cold.wind south westerly 1-2

those racing from time to time included:odd,hugh,leslie,jim and richard,a member of the public “mike:was a dinghy sailor and interested in our racing ,hugh lent him his boat and he sailed a number of races .john came but did not race ,and bearing in mind the cold conditions this was understandable ,the wind was mainly along the pond ,with a beat up to the first mark  but later veered westerly ,more across the pond with a reach to the first mark .and back to the finish the light and variable breeze meant some had wind while others did not .sail setting for the shifts was tricky and close fought  finishes were spread out among  those racing .six races were enough and all retired to the warm of the club house.
