Next Mark – Frostbite Race Jan 1

Seasons Greeting WLSC Racers,
This the NOR (Notice of Race) for the New Year’s Day Frostbite Race.

New Year’s Day 01-01-2018

Prelude: Coffee and cookies on the deck at 11:00
Sign up online or on the deck by 12:30
Skippers meeting on the deck at 1:00 PM
Race Start 2:00 PM
Potluck on the deck between 4 and 5, depending on Race Conditions

This will be a pursuit race. The course will be around the Island and back. The staggered start times will be provided at the skippers meeting. If you are planning on racing please let Race Captain Sam Shafer know, sign up by replying by email and letting me know of your intent to race, so that I can work on the start times ahead of time. For those of you looking for crew or to be crew please let me know and pass the information along.

Reminder, it is each skippers own decision whether to participate or not. Skippers should take into consideration anticipated conditions, capabilities of boat and crew, skippers own skill and comfort level and any other considerations that the skipper deems pertinent to determine whether to participate in the Frostbite race and/or to continue racing once the Frostbite race has started.

The Race Captain encourages skippers and crew to wear life jackets as the water is getting cold.

Traditionally there has been a nosh after the race. This year we’ll start with a big pot of coffee, cocoa, and cookies before the race.

Commodore Bob Hebner says the post-race potluck will kick off with a supersized pot of chili for our main course. Bring any dish you like, your favorite recipe chili, savory hot soups, and of course desserts.

Sam Shafer
