Wednesday 13th August dawned a good day for the western area TT at Frampton on Severn Sailing Club. After our coffee and Bacon Butties everything looked set for some good racing.

The OOD set a figure of 8 course with the first beat into a SW 10mph breeze and 18 boats set out to race. Twenty minutes into the first race a weather front came through bringing 10 minutes of torrential rain and a wind shift to WNW, gusting up to 20mph, this became a testing time for the competitors but all finished except Mark Collyer who had a damaged seat in his 2.3.

The marks for the second race were reset and off everyone went in 10mph winds for a close but uneventful race. The race honours having changed for each race.

After an excellent lunch the next two races got underway, the course having been changed to a triangle with a WNW beat. The wind strength was 8 – 12 mph with a slight oscillation in the direction, and was generally dry throughout.

Again the races were closely fought in all classes except the 2.3 where Pat Crowley had runaway wins.

During the Tea and Cakes at the end the prizes were given as listed below. Thanks go to all the members of FOSSC for putting on an excellent event, with particular mention to Peter and Barbara Atkey who did the organisation and catering.
