Frostbite Series 4 – 16th January 2022

With a light SW wind varying 2-5 mph, Ron set pretty well the same course as last week, 4, 9, 5, 6, 7 and back through the start.

Pursuit Race

11 starters this morning and it was good to see Chris and Toby out in their Omega.

In the light wind the earlier starting boats could not be caught by the faster handicap boats and the order at the gun was –  

1st Mike C/Solo; 2nd Chris H/Comet; 3rd Roland/Solo; 4th Dave & Ann/Leader; 5th Newton & Sam/RS200; 6th Aileen/Comet

The only Laser out today was Chris K and he was 7th with Alessandro & Mike T/470 next followed by Paul W/Morbic, Rick &Lottie/RS200 and Chris & Toby/Omega.

Handicap Race

Emily joined the second race, which turned out to be a one lapper with the first six boats fairly close together. Chris & Toby, Rick & Lottie and Paul retired leaving nine to finish.

The order on the water was – 1st Alessandro & Mike T; 2nd Roland; 3rd Mike C; 4th Chris H; 5th Chris K; 6th Aileen; 7th Emily; 8th Newton & Sam; 9th Dave & Ann.

On corrected time this changes to – 1st Chris H; 2nd Roland; 3rd Aileen; 4th Mike C; 5th Emily; 6th Chris K
