Frostbite Race and non-potluck nosh

Happy New year to everyone!

We had a great Frostbite Race! Winds were 5-10 and the temp might have reached 20F. We had approximately 22 people on 7 boats and 2 boat that had never raced before.

Congratulations to Jim Little and crew on a very well sailed race.
1. Jim Little, Holder 20
2. Billy Becker, Catalina 27
3. Carter Quillen, San Juan 21
4. Sam Shafer, J22
5. Tommy Willis, Pearson 26
6. Jeff Arnfield, Chrysler 26
7. Rod Fisher, Watkins 23XL

I would like to thank everyone who came out.

I would like to thank Billy Becker for bringing coffee and donuts for before the race.

I would also like to thank those who provided food and hot drinks on the deck for the Non-potluck nosh after the race; Jeff and Laura Arnfield for bringing the chicken and white bean chili, hot cider with rum, hot chocolate with peppermint schnapps and making hot water, Bill Murdoch for bringing cookies, cider, rum, and the electric kettle, and Josh and Tonya Hinkle for the potato soup.

We had a great time rehashing the race and catching up with some hot beverages and nosh.

We missed everyone that could not attend and hope to see you at future races.

Sam Shafer
Race Captain
