5 march 2017-first sunday of the month -one metre day


cloudy .cold.wind force 4 to 5 mainly south westerly

those sailing from time to time included .leslie.hugh.jim.john.also present were grant who set up the bouys .richard who kept the scores and ted

the full rig boats managed to work their way upwind behind the middle rig boats .but lack of control made for difficulties with accurate bouy  rounding and  downwind runs when they buried bows and ended up stalled it took ages while they might have been going faster downwind before they got out of control.once stalled it took ages to get back on course .so the middle rigs increased their lead.

those that did sail the 2 races held deserve credit for putting on some sort of competition in very testing conditions .hopefully the next events will encounter better weather.


race 1:leslie jim john

race 2:leslie john
