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.

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.
