Hi Guys

The 1st official Nip meet at Richmond this year, will be at the Start of Season Show, 1 May 2011

Due to the number of activities on the day, participants are asked to register their radio at the radio shack, even if you are using 2.4Ghz.
Please bring extra crysals if using 27 or 40Mhz

David Cowie won't be there, so ...................... Wink

The big day arrived, Richmond's Start of Season Sail, including the Nip race Razz

Thought I had it all sussed radio wise. Rolling Eyes

All the Nipsters filled the sheet for radio time at 2.30, so life should have been good but we had not allowed for Joe Shocked who decided to leave his radio on with the peg attached while he went for tea. Mad
Despite a number of calls on the tannoy, Joe was in his own wee world blissfully unaware of the consequences of his action Rolling Eyes
To make matters worse, the water pump to our pond has been out of action for a while, resulting in the Nips "grounding out " at the edges of the pond. It is due to be fixed soon.

After you passed "the hump" sailing could commence. Laughing For once, the wind did not drop. Somehow, no matter what leg you were on, you were sailing into the wind Shocked



James, from K'wood led the pack for a while, he seems to be flourishing lately & could be the one to watch Cool

Both races had the same outcome, Colin Mc. 1st followed by Allan L.

We had 12 Nips from the following clubs, Ayr, K'wood, new Npis from Largs, Rouken Glen, Elder Park as well as Richmond.

It was an excellent start to the season. Laughing

GSSMS have asked the Nipsters to take part in the South Side Festival, in Queens Park, Glasgow, on the 28th May 2011.Razz

The pond is in excellent condition this year, with none of the usual weed, so all we need is wind. Cool

June's Nip Sunday, only had 5 entrants, which is what I expected because of the low water level at Richmond, Embarassed this will be resolved next month, when the new pump is installed. Very Happy

The Nips went in & guess what, the wind dropped & the rain came on, Oh joy, I thought. It was not the best of conditions for sailing.

Allan Lindsay was in top form & romped home S L O W L Y

David Cowie was later found in the end shead, with his rasp, filling more lead off his bulb, to get the weight down again Rolling Eyes

The best part of the day, was the pies the club got in. Laughing I'm sure some people had more than others because there were none left.

Some of us are planning to go to Knightswood on 3rd July, so I might see you there.
