2018 Frostbite Racing

Registration opens 1 December

Frostbite starts 1 January at the Newport Yacht Club.  After this we race every Sunday, except Easter Sunday, until the middle of April.  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.

Class B rounding the windward mark.Class B heading downwind with Charlie Shoemaker in the crash boat observing.George Kirk approaching the windward mark.Class A start: L to R - FJ Ritt, Roy Guay, Paul Fleming, Bob Morton, Paul Del Nero just before Roy Guay turtled while tacking.
