5 november 2017 first sunday of the month one metre day


Cold ,broken cloud .wind starting westerly .veering north- westerly  force 3 to 4 .the weight of the cold air added to the wind force so that force 5 was reached in some of the gusts .those racing from time to time were leslie,jim,and john .leslie experienced a rudder servo failure .so racing racing stopped  until  he had installed a replacement .we also had a visit  from a councillor  to discus possible long term plans for developing a cafe alongside the club .this was obviously important so that racing only resumed after the  discussion was over .by this time it was getting colder so it was agreed to stop after a total of 5 races had been sailed .

club history

hi everyone out there in digital land. we are trying to compile a history of the clapham model yacht club . i would be most interested to hear from any old members idealy from the 60s and 70s  who remember the clubhouse being built . or could put me in touch with members from that era. sadly the club is under threat from lambeth council who are intent on acquiring the land to build a cafe.it would be criminal to close the club and lose the sight of graceful model yachts sailing on the long pond .
