2019 Frostbite Racing
Frostbite starts 1 January at the Newport Yacht Club. After this we race every Sunday, except Easter Sunday, until the middle of April (14th). We start setting up the boats at 1130. We typically have two classes, A and B. Position from previous weeks racing determines what class one is put in. There actually is a C Class however they never leave the bar! We typically rotate the classes; Class A races with Class B running the race, then Class B races with Class A running the race, etc.

4/17 - Two corrections made. First the date was incorrect at 4/17 (changed to 4/14) and also Chris Arbuthnot was mistakenly given Nick Pires' scores (corrected). The final results only changed for Chris and Nick.
4/14 - Nice day, sunny (until the end), warm and light winds out of the south. Last race! End of 2019 season.
4/7 - Lots of races today, 12. Nice warm, somewhat sunny, wind around 15 kts out of the SW. Next week is last week for 2019.
3/31 - Racing canceled today.
3/24 - Racing canceled after two people went in the water. Jamie Currier decided to leave his boat so the boat never trutled! Strong South Westerly.
3/17 - Gorgeous day, sunny, nice breeze, 27 people and 10 races held.
3/10 - Racing cancelled, again. Ugly weather; windy and raining.
3/3 - No wind initially caused a delay in starting however once they started they got 8 races in. Nice day, sunny, NW about 8-12 knots.
2/24 - Another one bites the dust! Racing canceled today. However several frostbitters donated blood.
2/17 - Nice day and only 21 people showed up. Sunny, light and very shifty winds starting NE going NW.
2/10 - Nice day, 13 races! Sunny, temp in the 30s. Wind under 10 W initially, ending up around 12 kts WNW.
2/3 - We were going nicely when Tyler Miller went for a swim. Three classes, total of 8 races. Mild day with light winds.
1/20 - Racing canceled for the day. Raining and surprisingly no wind since the prediction is for lots of wind.
1/13 - Sunny, light wind but cold!!! Lots of people showed up so 3 classes were used.
1/6 - Well, they gave it a try. After the second person went in, Dennis, in the 4th race, racing was canceled. Sunny but NW typically gusty into the 20s.
1/1 - We've heard this song before. Racing canceled for the day due to amazingly stron winds however the temperature is in the mid 50s! See you Sunday.
