Frostbite racing results for 11/21
Dave W scored best for the day, in the 10-boat Frozen fleet, with a another run of strong and chill winds from the north east. Second place, by tie-breaking rules, favored Fauss over Ray W.
After two races, the Race Committee sent sailors on a long upwind leg in the third race to the navigational mark, Green Can 3. That allowed time during the race to adjust the course to match the changing conditions. As temperatures warmed, the wind eased and shifted east forty degrees.
Five races were completed (T, G, W, T, and O). No protests lodged. Afterwards, back at the Club over chef Jeff's sausage and pepper sandwiches, there was plenty of talk about the day's interesting situations, including a question of Rule 45 ("Hauling Out; Making Fast; Anchoring"). It was agreed that there was no tactical advantage gained when Catherine caught her main sheet on a cleat on the North dock.
Race Committee Skipper Dave S. volunteered to be next week's chef for the fleet, amidst speculation that turkey leftovers might be on the menu.
