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.

2/11 - This sounds familiar. Canceled. Fog, no wind!
2/4 - A couple of races in each fleet before Super Bowl fewer took hold. Damp, 10-18 knots out of the SE.
1/28 - Guess what? No racing again due to lack of wind and none predicted.
1/21 - 35 people showed up so three fleets were used however the wind was extremely light and racing was canceled after one race in each class.
1/14 - We actually raced today! Temp in the middle 20s with NE breeze about 10-15. One of the newbees turtled! First one in for the year. 6 races were run.
1/7 - Are we off to a treat start! Morning temperatures in the -2 degrees area claimed another day. NO RACING again. Maybe next Sunday.
1/1 - We are off to a flying start. NO RACING. Really really cold. Single digits this morning! Well maybe next Sunday however long range forecast doesn't look any better.
