Sail Chat 15th October 2023

1306445 orig

Overall a sunny day which was relished by the last of the sun seekers. With the wind from the North twitching from NE to NW, it paid to be vigilant, spot the patches of breeze and be patient for the arrival of a puff. If you bore away, your vmg went to pot and; if you luffed to Surrey, you ran into most of the GP fleet including the Bunner's in their new shiny GP. Derek and Sue won that one. Ian and Suzie joined the Handicappers unoffically, won by David in a hard fought battle with Roger's Laser, James Bay and Michaela's Comet. Phil Dalby and Charlie sailed by themselves in the Merlin. This was much applauded by the club (quite rightly) and it continues something of a tradition in their fleet of being crewed by infants. They generally become great sailors in the fullness of time.

The AM handicap was won by Simon Girven and Claude by several laps sailing the short course. Brian's Comet sailing solo came second, David came third, unable to get far enough ahead of the Comet, the second place changing hands several times and James Bay improving all the time.

There were cakes from Lizzie Page etc. DO Trevor. ADO James Peel.

With thanks to David our Sailing Secretary
