teds boat a tony abell dolphin .suprised all . not noted for its light wind performance .but did well in the fluky conditions, the results do not convey how tight the racing was with some races won by boats that made bad starts and with many  position changes .it was so engrossing one skipper tried to sail an extra lap whilst in the lead .no names but i finished last i blame it on the heat

1 metre -soling race

June 6, 2017 at 8:33 pm | Posted in News | Leave a comment

4 june 2017 first sunday of the month -one metre day

conditions

warm sunny .wind south south west  force 2-3

the pond remains shallow due to the long dry spell wich seems  likely to continue .because of the shallow water .instead of one metres we are now sailing solings and these are at last being bought back into commission after being laid up for years .hughs boat had been leaking at the keel .but this was due to the wood of the keel case drying out and shrinking .after being used for the whole day .the wood took up and the  leak was cured . hopefully all the solings will be in working trim so we have an ample fleet to replace the one metres .there will be boats to borrow for those without there own solings .

allthough  it took some time to get all the boats ready and on the water we had a good days sailing with 11 races completed those racing from time to time included .leslie,hugh,grant,john,richard,ted,fred.and jose
