Frensham Cadets Training Day

I went along to Frensham Pond Sailing Club on Saturday 15th October to photograph my granddaughter, Isabelle Thorp, during the Cadet Training event held that day.  Fortunately, Mark Walker, Cadet Class Captain, arranged for me to spend some time on the water in a RIB which got me close to the boats racing. However, it started raining the night before and continued to rain all day and into the evening.  Kitted out with my waterproofs and camera protection I sat in the RIB with two gentleman who steered me through the many dinghies on the pond.  Apart from the Fensham Cadets training and racing, there were a number of other clubs with different classes boats also taking part - this led to a very busy day.

The sailing club caters for a wide range of boats including, Solo, Laser, Enterprise, GP14, RS200, Lark and the two handed Cadet dinghies for juniors.

A Few Images from the Day

Isabelle and Bo in the Cadet dingy - notice the rain!

I think the first picture sets the scene showing the rain looking like a mild snow storm. Apart from the rain, which was relentless, it was cold.
