Frostbite racing results for 11/28/2010
Competition is heating up for The Frozen Few! This Sunday drew a dozen skippers to race Sunfish with Edgewood's frostbite fleet. Race Committee set up 5 standard courses, a T, W2, G, W2, and O. The sixth race was an unexpected bonus, a hefty WL jaunt upwind to Green Can 5 at Port Edgewood and back to the finish line. Northerly winds were variable and shifty with mild temperatures in the low 40s.
Kyle got the best score for the day with 14 points, followed by David W. and Ray W.
The fleet also welcomed new skipper, Kevin, who arrived at the start of the 5th race, and sailed on to win it! RC Stuart remarked that "it sounded like crispy paper when he tacked!" After eight years suspended in its unopened packaging, Kevin unfolded his "brand new" sail and sent it flying!
Dave S. received thanks for serving as this week's Race Committee skipper and chef. Bill S. volunteered for next week.
