A sunny day greeted competitors to the rearranged Frampton on Severn Hansa TT. The winds were NE and ranging in strength from 6 – 12 mph and oscillating round through 45 degrees as the day went on.

Our Frampton TT was also the last event of the 2015 Hansa Western TT Series which gave added importance to the results for many of the sailors.

Although the number of competitors was down on last year there being just 12 throughout all classes, the individual race results were very changeable during the day making for some interesting final results.

The first morning races saw a complete change of fortunes between the two races, in the Liberty class David Durston had a resounding win in the first race with Melvin Kinnear taking the second.

In the Hansa 303 one person Alison Grant came first with James Woosnam third and again in the second race these positions were swopped.

In the Hansa 303 two person class Steve Emery and Mark Smyth took the honours in the first race with Glynis Dawe and Hugh Lansdown taking the second race.

Off the water for a lunch of Shepherd's Pie whilst the wind changed direction 45 degrees and a resetting of the course to a simple figure of eight for the last two back to back races.

Again the competition was fierce with some stronger gusts coming through and some competitors finding weed on their foils due to the water height in the lake. However everyone had some good racing with positions regularly changing. The only one certain of his position in the results for each race was local sailor Colin Cavanagh, the only entrant in the Hansa 2.3 class.
