Frensham Sailors Triumph Again
FPSC enjoyed a great weekend at the RS Tera Southern Championships hosted by Royal Lymington Yacht Club over the week-end of 6th/7th May. Well done to Ralph Nevile who claimed the RS Tera Pro Championship with straight wins and to Tom Ahlheid who won the RS Tera Sport Championship with very nearly straight wins. As noted at the prize giving, it was a particularly impressive performance given that we don’t have tides and waves on the Pond !
If you have ever thought about having a go at sailing, but have never actually tried it then why not come to Frensham Pond Sailing Club’s open day. Come and have a look at the various types of boats that are sailed at the club, have a taster sail and talk to people who can explain how to get started in the sport. Just bring a towel and a change of clothes in case you get wet.
The open day runs from 10AM until 2PM. Last taster sails start at 1:30PM
Frensham Racers- Please note that the Saturday Handicap will start at 3.00pm to accommodate Open Day activities
