A brisk and cold wind from the ENE entertained us sailors but it was a good direction to stem the still quite strong current. With this direction there were some strong and intermittent puffs, especially off Bell Hill and opposite the club. James Bay, Tim/Claude and James Peel in Comets were out as was David in his Solo. Officiating were John Hollands and Brian and in the Timekeepers box most of the family Page except Richard! Really keen these timekeepers Hilary showed as well! No incidents in my view.

In the afternoon there were again the three Comets being James Bay, James Peel and Tim/Claude, David had a rest and stated he was taking his time to mature for racing, just like a good wine! The Commodore was with Susie and Jane with me in the Enterprises. James Peel had a cracking race and was difficult to shake off, though not in our fleet. Terrific contest in the Ents with many place changes, the windward mark off the Church land generally being the arbiter. Ian and Susie had it by a whisker.

Great tea by the Vice and Deirdre and Bar by Brian.

Elsewhere - cracking run by Lucy Penwarden in the London Marathon and another blow for the rather male dominated Merlin class as Caroline and Livvy won at Fishers Green (nice pic on Whatsapp). JB slightly mournful 'Might lose my crew now'.

See you next week when there is the round the island race and supper on Saturday and normal Sunday racing.
