3 June 2018 – First Sunday of the Month – One Metre Day

Conditions
Warm and sunny. Wind generally southerly, no more than force 2.

On the pond the wind was frequently shifting, sometimes from opposite directions along the pond. In light patches it was difficult to tell wind direction at all.

Those racing from time to time included: Grant, Hugh, Ted, Jim and John. A visitor who is interested in joining the club, Florent, borrowed Hugh’s boat. Ted had control problems and also borrowed a boat. Mostly this was match racing using two boats with skippers changing during races. In these light conditions, Hugh’s boat seemed to be faster.

Results
Race 1: Grant, Hugh
Race 2: Hugh, Grant
Race 3: Florent, Grant
Race 4: Florent, Grant

20 May 2018 – Third Sunday of the Month – 6 Metre Day

Conditions
Warm and sunny. Wind easterly up to force 2.

On the pond the wind was fluky and frequently divided into contrary streams across the pond.

Those racing were Grant and Hugh. Other people were on holiday.
The environment was very pleasant, we had taken out chairs and much of the time was spent relaxing.

We held four races, they were closely contested. The save to time, the last race was supposed to be a quick sausage, up to the western mark and back to the start. Unfortunately Hugh, who had been ahead, set out by habit to sail a triangle, so that Grant won the last race.

Results
Race 1: Grant, Hugh
Race 2: Hugh, Grant
Race 3: Grant, Hugh
Race 4: Grant, Hugh

Next race is One Metre Day on 3 June, see you then, Hugh
