conditions

cool,wind north-westerly 2-3

the prolonged drought had led to the pond drying up.the low water level was insufficient to race one metres it was decided to race solings .however the solings had not been used for a long time .jims boat turned out to be half full of water because of a roof leak .the electrics were ruined winch ,rudder servo and switch .hughs soling appeared ok until it was launched but had developed a leak around the keel .so it soon flooded .other sailors hadn’t brought compatible radio equipment .so weren’t able to use this with the solings .after juggling existing equipment with the available fleet of solings .four working boats were got into racing trim .this had taken some hours so we were late in starting the racing .five races were held in the rather light and fluky conditions .those racing were jim.john.richard,and fred
