Billy broke his centreboard and had to retire second race. Also lost my burgee, which is insignificant, except I think that's the longest stretch any single one burgee has ever survived at the top of my mast.
But Jeremy definately had the better of me both races this time around.
The Framptom Moths do lunch The more sensible members of the Frampton Moth fleet are going for Sunday lunch at the Bell today while some of the more hardy members will be breaking the ice and launching their boats into the icy waters. Let me think cold glass of stella and open fire or cold lake of water and a cup of soup, I will see you at the pub then. New Boy
Rob I woulld love to see you back in a Moth but should warn you things have changed and the only thing you will see of Painted Lady is her stearn as you follow her round the course. That is if you can get that close!
Guess that was my way of saying she won't be for sale next year.
Hope your well and that we get to see you out on the water or just in the pub with us South West lightweights soon.
I will be at Tropical Frampton from 10am on Sunday the 22nd waiting for all you Mothists who still think it's to cold to sail. Please be at the club no later than 11.30 and Mr Witts will be serving cheap no doubt pre dinner drinks from 11.
If you have not yet told me you are coming please do, either here or by email.
Aperitivo,s and a selection of New World Wines will be served at 11-11.30a.m. to herald the start of Tropical Framptons British Moth 2009 Season. Adjourning to the rustic charm of The Bell on Frampton Green after. Looks like being a good turnout but apologies from Team Gribble,Team Higson,Steve Kendall and Dave Badminton. First Frampton Series Racing starts on Sunday March 1st[Bill is on A.O.O.D, duty] Roger Witts
Tropical weather greated 7 moths for the 1st race day of Framptons season. Great fun was had by all and it is clear that there will be some close racing going on. I was able to hit 3 boats over the 2 races 4 if you count the committee boat! Thought I would tell you all before someone else did. I loved being back in the boat but my aches have aches now so on a get fit mission now New Boy
