Frostbite Race #4


E-2-81Welcome to the WCSC Frostbite Series for 2022The 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: If you are ahead of a boat on the racecourse, you are beating that boat. The first boat to the finish wins, simple as that.

After the race, we will warm up at the fireplace, likely have an adult beverage (BYOB), and enjoy a meal of soup or chili provided by Ben and Pat Gibson. I expect we will also enjoy the usual post-race trash talk.
