Sail-World.com : Phantom Open at Frensham Pond
Phantom Open at Frensham Pond

'Phantoms and Frensham Pong SC (2012)'    Frensham Pond SC

The windguru curse and the difficulty of getting fuel, was a deterrent for some people for travelling, but a small and very select group arrived at the pond to be greeted by beautiful sunshine and a mirror calm lake.

Fortunately, for Race officer Bruce Hill, some pressure appeared on the water and the first race started with only a short delay. The committee boat end was favoured and Nick Mason and Tim Hemsley got away cleanly, Tony Cumerbatch picked up a great shift on the left and would have led around the first mark had he noticed the change of rounding. Tim and Nick led the way for the next two legs until Tim pulled away in some new pressure.

On the second lap Tim had about a 300 metre lead when he sailed into a hole and the fleet caught up to him, Jeremy Hudson crept through to leeward to lead briefly before the wind swung 180 degrees and allowed Tim to pull away again. At the penultimate mark the fleet bunched up again but Tim held his lead whilst behind there was a lot of jockeying for the places eventually Nick Mason got second and Bob Larder third.

Whilst there was still some pressure Bruce Hill decided to hold race 2 back to back, and with a very Pin end bias line again Nick Mason and Tim Hemsley got away cleanly and pulled away, Nick led around the first mark but was then passed by Tim who was bringing up some new wind with the rest of the fleet. Tim Managed to pull out quite a lead, which although contracted from time to time he held to the end, whilst behind the rest had a nip and tuck battle with it appeared most of the fleet holding second for a while before Nick Royse managed a mini break and took second at the finish.

After a Phantomesque lunch of Pies etc. most of the fleet assembled for the last race Tim Hemsley decided that it would be more fun to send Nick Mason’s son Michael out in his place to battle his old man. After much deliberation from Bruce a start got away and Nick Royse got ahead by the first mark, Bob Larder and Nick Mason were always close behind looking for a way past coming close many times but this order stayed to the finish.

Thanks must go to Bruce Hill and the 2.4mR fleet for running the racing, Sala and her team for feeding us so well, and all the competitors who brought food for the afternoon tea.
