To open the Hansa TT series of 2022, it was a return to Frampton on Severn Sailing Club for the first time since 2018. The weather turned out very good with winds force 2 gusting to 3 and varying in direction from SW to S. The day was cloudy with a short shower just as the second race finished.

The first two races were run back-to-back with the Hansa 2.3 and Hansa 303 double handers being combined on the start. After Lunch another pair of back-to-back races completed the event.

The first Liberty race had a little drama at the start when David Durston (Whitefriars) had some electrical problems just before the start and had to start 1 minute late, and whilst sailing very quickly failed to improve his position and catch the three boats in front who were having a very close battle. However, in the next three races he was up at or near the front and finished winning overall.

The Hansa 2.3 class had two competitors, Lindsay Burns (Frensham Pond) and Rowena Marsh (New Forest), Lindsay had three determined races and won overall.

The most populated class was the Hansa 303 single handers with six boats in the mix, Rory McKinna (Clyde Cruising Club) justified his long trip south by winning all four races, with following boats keeping the pressure up as they changed positions throughout. It was good to see Logan Bell (Rutland), who started his traveller racing mid-season last year, start his first full season's Hansa TT series racing with us at Frampton on Severn.

Unfortunately, there was only one starter in the Hansa 303 Double Hander, so Steve Kitson and Jane Knight (New Forest) had an easy win.

Thanks must go to Frampton on Severn Sailing Club for putting on a great event and especially to OOD Ken Elsey for setting an interesting and testing course for the days racing. Thanks must also go to the Galley Staff for keeping everyone fed and watered, plus all the other helpers on the day to make it run very smoothly.
