Frostbite Race #2


Frostbite Race #2


     Welcome to the WCSC Frostbite Series for 2021
The Frostbite is a pursuit start race series open to all sailors and boats and is a great way to enjoy your club and your boat over the winter months without the formality of windward-leeward buoy racing.

     If you haven’t tried a pursuit race before, government navigation buoys are used for course marks, and boats receive staggered start times based on their PHRF ratings so the slower boats start first, followed by faster boats. This eliminates all those crowds at the start. It also adds a “fun factor” to the race because you can see exactly how you’re doing against the competition: the first boat to the finish wins, simple as that.

     Traditionally there has been soup or chili served at the clubhouse after each race. Due to the pandemic, a decision will be made for each race whether to do this or not. Please refer to the “Upcoming Events” section on the website home page (or click on the event on the website calendar) for the latest information. 

     Races are scheduled for 1 Jan, 9 Jan, 16 Jan, 23 Jan, 13 Feb, and 27 Feb. Skippers' meeting is at 11:00. At that time we will decide which course to sail and will explain the pursuit start process.

You are advised to download and print the Sailing InstructionsLake Map, and the Buoy and Course List (You must be logged in). If you are new to the Club’s pursuit start races, you may wish to read A Beginner's Guide to the Frostbite Series.
