K-Class

 

As well as the established class racing at Frensham, we have a “class” for those who do not sail in a recognised fleet. Currently the K class is open to any boat, with a PY number of less than 1266, that does not have its own class start.

The K class is the fleet from which new recognised fleets are born, (RS200s have recently become an established class at the club), allowing close and exciting racing under the PY handicap system. Currently we have Larks, K1s, RS100s and RS Aeros racing with some other interesting boats such as Phantoms, RS Feva XLs, an OK, and a Comet.  In recent years boats that have raced with us include Streakers, Europes, a Scorpion, a 420, and a Merlin Rocket.  During 2022 RS200s will continue to race with the K Class, as well as having their own class starts.

Racing at Frensham

K Class racing takes place every Sunday, with the exception of open meeting days, alternating from mornings to afternoons every week.  In the summer the morning flight of racing begins at 11:00, with starts at 5-minute intervals.  The K Class is the 3rd start so the race starts at 11:10. The afternoon flight of racing begins at 14:30 and the K Class is again the 3rd start, so the race starts at 14:40.  In the winter, racing takes place every Sunday, on the same rotation system as the summer, except the K Class starts are at 10:40 and 14:10.

As well as K Class racing boats are also able to compete in all of the Handicap and Pursuit races organised by the club.  These take place on Saturdays and Sundays throughout the year, and Wednesday evenings in the summer.
