Fleets Building Up for the Frostbite Season


Despite the expected poor wind and low temperatures, last Sunday’s races turned out to be well attended, with eleven boats. There was a nice steady breeze, enough to keep you exercising in the boat to keep warm – unless you were in a patrol RIB. Aidan McKay and Connla Conway, ably assisted by Josh Donnelly, set a perfect windward-leeward course, making a great race, enjoyed by all.

The Frostbite Season runs until Christmas Eve, so it’s still wide open.

Plenty of close sailing at the start line.
