The last Frostbite Race was sailed in beautiful sunshine with a light breeze and was a nail-biting race as the result for the Series Winner was all on this race. The four finishers and four who qualified for a result all finished with very close times, the winner, Alpha Cassiopeiae, only beating Kite-Runner by 0.2 – it doesn’t get closer than that!
Our President, Richard Roberts, was pouring out the traditional G&T’s to keep us going until we had finished de-rigging. Hosing down our boats and packing them up to take home for the Winter, had to wait until the high Spring Tide receded, as it was nearly up to the sea wall! The race was then followed by a delicious lunch with a choice of 4 dishes for the main course and a choice of equally delicious puds.
Many thanks to the Race Teams, Chris Gill, Helen Goody, Mike and Lydia Finney, and to the wonderful Lunch Team, Caroline, Judith and Helen. It was all a lovely and fitting end to the season.
See you all at the Winter Supper in February. Liz, your Sailing Sec
