Enterprise Open Meeting 2012
The last of the SE Area Enterprise meetings on 14th October saw Frensham at its picturesque best at 11:00 with mist rising from still water but the race officer Keith Videlo’s delay of 1 hour was timed beautifully as the wind filled in from the north west.
During the day the light wind held up with shifts beyond westerly, especially under the large clouds, making for interesting tactical racing with some planing but never taxing even with 19 Enterprises and 17 GP14s. All races were dominated by the visiting trio of David and John Beaney, Ann Jackson/Alan Skeens and Martin and Laurence Davies showing their prowess at roll tacking. The nearest to challenge in the 3 races were Nick Carr/Nick Stevens, Phil Chambers/Chris Parker and Colin Gilbert/Andy Majury with local boat, Colin Gilbert/Andy Majury, taking 4th overall just pipping Alex and Ian Johnson on a tie-break.
David and John Beaney’s place in the Thames Valley Bowl was already secure but the 1st also gave them the Frensham Packard Cup and the South East Area Championship.
It was such a lovely day that few were in a hurry to leave and 14 entered the last race before a convivial tea with the prize giving by Jeff Dolton aided by Bob and Paul Southworth.
