Frensham Five 2010 - Race 7 & 8

Nigel Hufton - 22nd March 2010

Races 9&10 – and the postponed race 6 - of the 2010 Frensham 5 took place on 21 March.

With no wind when they arrived, competitors were surprised to find a mellow Force 2-3 with even some warmth in it materialise.

Yet another Frensham trademark downwind start saw Andy & Ben Shorrock squeeze into the lead and were never passed, followed by Chris Ellis & Ed Smith. The ‘pecking order’ was repeated in the second race – as it was for all 9 boat competitors, despite some close racing!

With all races sailed, Chris Ellis & Ed Smith won the series, followed by Nigel Hufton and various crews. Eluned Jones & Millie Parsons came third - on countback, by dint of a second place earlier in the series - from Phil Whitney and Lynda Williams. A great event was enjoyed by all competitors sailing the 12 boats which entered the series.
