Frensham Frenzy

Steve Cumley - 13th March 2007

9 Larks joined a menagerie of classes to compete in the Frensham Frenzy on Sunday 11 March. The event sponsored by Guildford Marine was held in great conditions with clear sunny skies and a blustery breeze which kept everybody on their toes.

The event format, two pursuit races with both to count made for close and exciting racing. Starting with the Larks were the Finns and Lasers so the start line was competetively fought for.

Undeterred Jon Fish & Toby Lewis made the best start in both races and clearly led the pack of Larks round the first marks. In the first race Steve Cumley & Eluned Jones worked their way back from a bad start and eventually led the Larks home in 4th place. In the second race Jon & Toby were able to make the most of their clear air and escape the clutches of the pack to challenge the front runners, eventually finishing 4th. Chris Whitehouse & Milly Parsons finshed close behind in 5th.

Overall (Larks only)
5th Steve Cumley and Eluned Jones 13 points
8th Jon Fish and Toby Lewis 15 points
9th Chris Whitehouse and Milly Parsons 17 points
10th Chris Ellis and Becky Hopwood 17 points
