Testing final two races of the Frostbite Series last Sunday!
15 boats took to the water for the forecast 15 gusting 29 knot races. With courses that took in the length and breadth of the reservoir there were some great upwind and downwind battles between the racers. And, multiple capsizes, which ensured the rescue crews didn’t get cold!
Lots of fun was had by one and all. Notable racing on the day included two stellar sails from Tom Gillard/ Rachael Gray (Scorpion) with two bullets in the fast fleet, matched by Becky Priest/ Ella Saunders (Mirror) in the slow fleet and Matt Lathoud (Laser) in the Laser fleet.
A big thank you to our on the water team headed up by Alan Bennett. And to our galley team – we all loved the Turkey stuffing filled rolls and delicious cakes!
