18 February 2018 – Third Sunday of the Month – Six Metre Day

Cool, sunny, dry. Wind generally south south-east, force 2-3.

Those racing from time to time included: Leslie, Hugh, Jim and John.

On the pond, the wind was changing direction and strength, at times quite light. The lead positions shifted often during the race, often depending on rounding a particular mark or a wind conditions during a particular leg.

Places were tightly contested throughout the 7 races that were held.

A couple of members of the public showed us a vintage pond yacht they had just bought, and will be coming back to share knowledge about restoring it into good sailing trim.

Race 1: Leslie, Hugh, Jim
Race 2: Jim, Hugh, John
Race 3: Jim, John, Hugh
Race 4: Jim, Leslie, John
Race 5: Jim, John, Leslie
Race 6: Jim, Leslie, Hugh
Race 7: Leslie, Jim, John

See you next One Metre Day Sunday 4 March, Hugh
