Wednesday 30th May

The boy done good! Rob Froud, sailing solo in Chris Bell's Albacore ended up showing us round the Mere tonight. Paul (Firefly) and lone Streaker Tony Legg set off more or less together and suffered a lack of wind early on. They were followed by the two Albacores after the requisite 5 minutes or so, on a course which sent us down to #5, then #4, #6, #2 (which was to prove the undoing of the boats leading at that time) before back to the "home marks" #9, #1, #0 closest to the club. Paul led the fleet astray by heading off towards #0 before realising, seeing Rob noticing the mistake, heading off for #2. This meant Rob was at this point overtaken by Dave and crew for the evening Jeremy Craven, however this combination were no match for Rob F's lighter weight and clearly superior speed tonight - pointing ridiculously high and catching the lifts. Two Blazes tonight - Ian McIntyre having collected his "new" prize possession form Helensburgh at the weekend showing good speed and pointing ability - he's found a bargain and with it a boat he seems very pleased with! - maybe Pip's started a trend - Well these two Blazes showed promise at stages, but as the wind varied and dropped they slid back. Andy and Stephen (Osprey) were carving through the fleet and had there been another long spinnaker leg in the S-Easterly tonight on the way back down to #7, the final result would have been different - however time was up before that could happen for them.

Jeremy spotted an interesting phenomenon tonight - a "plume" of what looked like smoke coming from the top of a tree on the south western shore - given that we were plagued with flies tonight, we decided that it was probably millions of insects, probably flies, possibly bees, though they did not coagulate into a proper swarm.

Wednesday 23rd May

A very pleasant evening's sail with the wind holding up, never more than around F2 or a smidgen more, but not fading away as often happens. A good turnout of 9 boats, with fortunes changing throughout the race for many. In contrast to many races, we zigzagged all the way down the Mere, giving alternate broad reaches/runs and beats down to #4, thence #6 to #5 and back to #0. Paul held his earlier starting lead for much of the trip down the lake, with Rob and Mike M vying for top Streaker slot. By #4, Rob was leading, but rounded the wrong way - and in attempting to right this, he merely "unwound" without additionally rounding properly - a mistake that was to cost him the race. The Osprey had plenty of spinnaker practice, but failed to make inroads - compounded by getting slowed down by lack of wind around #6 when they were there. The Albatross slowly gained on the fleet during the early part of the race and with just 5 minutes to go had just the leading two Streakers to overtake. Approaching #2 which was to be the penultimate mark, Mike M slowed his boat, causing a minor coming-together of bow and transom, precipitating a 720 and letting Tony R through. A chase to #8 followed, during which Tony R caught me Port-Starboard so although reaching #8 first, honour dictated a retirement, and with Rob P also retiring (though reaching #8 ahead of everyone else), Mike M took the race! Great to see Tony Legg and Ernie having good racing close behind the rest of the fleet.

Wednesday series 16th May 2012

Whereas the previous week had been characterised by cold, rain and some wind, tonight's sail was in really light winds, with a long first circuit, taking in #1 to get a beat in early, thence down to 5, then 4, off to #6, 2, 8, 1 and 9 (if memory serves me!) the first beat was such that the early starters were beset by variable winds, whereas later (Albacore and Osprey) could set for 1 almost without tacking. The wind failed most of the Streakers and the Firefly on the way to 5, so much so that eagle-eyed, I decided there was more wind the South side of the far shallows, however this left a long extra leg to get to 5, meaning that it didn't really pay, as the Streakers and co. did pick up a bit of a breeze after a while. Again later, there were shifts and holes in the wind, and it was just into the final minutes up the last mark before the Albacore managed just to pip Rob Parnaby who is taking over from Dave Metcalfe as the fast boat to catch in the Streaker phalanx. The Osprey showed a clean pair of heels to us all, having some effective spinnaker usage on this one, long circuit.

Wednesday evening 2nd May
The first of the evening series was similarly unpleasant I hear, with just five attempting to sail, Jeremy calling it a day before launching, Rob having his boat blown over as soon as he launched, and the four who sailed, found that a half hour was enough to satisfy their curiosity and decide the order of things: Mike Mooney, Hannah Hood and Ian McIntyre, with Rob as a DNF. Well done to them for braving the conditions!
