Sail-World.com : Cadets at Frensham Pond
Cadets at Frensham Pond

'Cadets at Frensham Pond Sailing Club (2012)'    Frensham Pond SC

Cadets were welcomed at Frensham Pond Sailing Club by sunshine, showers and a breeze that varied in direction through the day from zero to eight knots. All of this was tackled cheerfully by the 44 entrants. Seven different sailing clubs took part of which fifteen crews were visitors. The four race series went largely without a hitch despite a complete failure of the breeze for parts of the third race.

A definite group of front runners dominated the day regardless of conditions. In particular a tight contest was fought out between Matt Shorrock and Ryan Wilkinson of Frensham and Alex Corby and Robert Keen of Fishers Green SC. The final race concluded in a tie break both crews being level on points. The trophy though went to Alex and Robert who had one more first place. The wind shifts tended to favour the crews from inland waters and though the fleet was well spread out the standard of sailing was good from boat handling to tactical moves which did not always work.

After the final race Alex said. 'It’s been a good days sailing and the race officer did a good job. It was tight racing right to the end.'

At the prize giving Frensham Commodore Jeff Dolton thanked all who had travelled distances to be at the event. He gave special praise to Andy and Kate Shorrock who had done such a fine job as Cadet class leaders for the last four years. Special thanks went to race officer Chris Ellis for setting the courses for four races in difficult conditions and a special vote of thanks to galley manager Sala for feeding all eighty eight competitors and a huge following of families and friends. Safety, important in such a contest, was well organised by Iain Philpott and his team though no incidents occurred.
