19 march-third sunday of the month-six metre day

conditions,cloudy mild wind west southwesterly force 4-5

those present jim,john ,hugh,grant,leslie

conditions on the water were fairly boisterous .so those present were waiting for a sailor to venture on to the water to judge the effect of the conditions on six metre under full rig.since everyone was waiting for someone else to take the risk .a certain amount of delay ensued.meanwhile grant set out the bouys for the course hugh launched his boat and sailed around the course once .then put his boat on the grass waiting for the others to join him unfortunately by this time grant could not stay any longer.and leslie joined hugh for six races which were deemed to be sufficient

it was fairly straightforward to sail into the wind but of the wind courses were trickier .and any unlucky episodes straying from the proper course meant the competitor got clear ahead the racing was tightly contested nevertheless

neither boat was troubled by damage caused by the conditions.which had been the case with the one metre boats raced two weeks previously in similar conditions this is a tribute to the generally robust character of the six meter class.
