Swinging 60’s 10 Hour Race - Saturday 13th July 2012
It’s just one month to go to the 10 Hour Race; the largest and most popular annual sailing and social event in the Frensham calendar.
The theme this year is the 1960’s and we expect the boat and its crew to be suitably dressed! And there will be a fantastic prize of one year’s free berthing for the person who is the most imaginatively dressed in 60’s attire.
The Race will start at 9am and finish at 7pm. There will be team changes every 50 minutes.
There will also be the usual wide range of 'on-shore' attractions – good food and real ale, plus live entertainment from local musician Henry Tresize.
Drinks and snacks will be available throughout the day and a curry – with vegetarian option - will be served from around 7.00pm with prize-giving scheduled for 8.00pm.
The 10 Hour Race is about having fun and traditionally a team consists of a range of sailing abilities. Most teams have at least 3 crews: one of good ability, one of moderate ability and one relatively inexperienced. Your Class Captain will help you make up a team or allocate you to a team if you wish.
Each year, the Club uses the event to raise money for a good cause. This year, the appeal is in aid of the Farnham Foodbank – an organisation set-up to aid local people in crisis - so we need your help to raise lots of money.
Entry and Sponsorship forms will be available in the club foyer. Monies raised, sponsorship forms and donations can be handed in to the Club Manager, or to any General Committee member.
So put the date in your diary, encourage your family, friends & colleagues to support you and book your tickets now.
The entry cost is £30 for a double-hander and £25 for a single-hander. Cheques, with entry forms, should be made payable to 'Frensham Pond Sailing Club' and sent either to Julian Davies, Club Manager, at Frensham Pond Sailing Club, Pond Lane, Churt, Farnham, Surrey, GU10 2QA or handed to Julian in the office or in his absence, a General Committee Member.
