Ben and I will definately be there. Some sort of charity gig the night before, so will probably be a little worse for wear, but at least this time (unlike back in May) I'm not expecting to spend the night sleeping in a field in Devon, so will definately absolutely be there in time for a mug of tea and bacon roll!

Next event for the Frampton Moths is our 3rd Training Day on Sunday 10th August.
We have another Moth joining the Fleet.......... Aquired by one of the Frampton Three ,Andrew Parker-Mowbray, to re-boost Andrew,s personal Fleet back up to 3 boats. 515 "ECLAIRE" a fine and unusual Bossom,s creation is being sealed and loved in the P-M fashion and will no doubt appear in the near future no doubt complete with interesting period fittings and a touch of modernism. Our tally is 20 boats by the last count. Roger Witts Frampton Moths Frampton-on-Severn S.C.
P.S. Frampton Moths are "on duty" on Sept 14th for the Solo Open at F.O.S.S.C.
P.P.S. Looks like we need an session or two soon and get the Fleet out. Watch out for a Tropical Frampton No-News Letter.
Pretty certain that the Solo Open wants our help on Sunday the 14th However, the FOSSC website is down at the moment, so can't check.
Absolutely agree we need a session or two however. That said, even though the hull has been fixed and the mast in inbound, I need a week more to (enlist Dad to) fix my centreboard.
Maybe last weekend of September and the first weekend of October in preparation for the 11th? Maybe make it an informal gathering and gatecrash the Saturday Sailability lot? They're a friendly crowd, and only hog the lake for the duration of the morning.
I will be there for the 1st one and hope to make the second. Little worried as no mention of bacon! I will bring a big hammer to tune Painted Lady with! Looking forward to getting back on home waters. New Boy
F.O.S.S.C,s last Wednesday Evening Handicap Series Race at Frampers attracted only 4 Moths out in an entry of 23 boats.Wind was almost non-existent towards the end of the race but Andrew Parker-Mowbray and Tony Latham both started well in the light breeze at the start.Jeremy Higson and Mark Wiltshire faired less well back in the chasing pack but Mark did make steady gains throughout the race.Jeremy battled for clear air for the whole race and finished creditably mid fleet using "New Boys" spare sail. Andrew held on to 2nd place on the water untill the final lap but Tony faded as he was gradually overhauled by Mark and then a flock of Lasers.
Final British Moth positions... Andrew Parker-Mowbray - 2nd Mark Wiltshire -------------- 6th Tony Latham ---------------- 9th Jeremy Higson -------------- 10th
12 Moths turned up with 10 Moths on the water at the Moth Gathering at Truly Tropical Frampton... No wind to speak of so lots of time spent tweaking,and adjusting etc..... Great to see 3 Juniors out having fun and getting some "ooching"practice in ! Andrew Parker-Mowbray was devastatingly quick in the 1st Handicap Points race catching and having fun amidst the Solos and Lasers who started ahead. Next Moth Gathering will be Sunday 5th October....same time,same place.

B.B.Q Looks like the end of Jan for the winter feast. And it is my Birthday hint hint. We can sort the date at the next Tropical Frampton event which I believe is going to be between Christmas and new year. Looking forward to seeing all those Christmas Jumpers New Boy
It was good to see Jeremy and Bill out at tropical Frampton this weekend. Jeremy has a new P.B sail and was looking good. Bill had a winter swim but was pushing Jeremy around a very windy course. They looked like they were having lots of fun on water. I would love to tell you how they did but I left in search of a warm pub and a Sunday lunch along with the other more sensible members of Frampton. New Boy
