Frostbite Race 2019 Results

Ahoy WLSC Sailors!

In unusually mild 55F weather for New Year’s Day, we had an excellent turnout for the 2019 Frostbite Race with 12 captains and their crew racing to and around the island and back.  Winds were light for the staggered-race start and at the finish line (the marina buoy line), but picked up nicely to 5-8 kts out on the lake, with a couple boats flying their spinnakers.

After the race, a great turnout of ~40 people gathered on the deck to enjoy a potluck spread of several kinds of soups, cuts of meats, salad, desserts, etc and just enjoy being together at the lake on the first day of the New Year.

The race results for the first 5 finishers (all within 10 minutes) were as follows:

1st    Skip Greene – J24
2nd   Billy Becker – Catalina27
3rd    Wayne Catoe – Hunter 30
4th    Bill Murdoch – Tanzer 22
5th    Oleg – Hobie Cat 16

Other racers included Jeff Arnfield, Scott Fagley, Bob Hebner, Warren Lamb, John Middaugh, Tommy Willis, and Mike on the Lancer 28.

Too many people to mention helped with the setup and clean-up, and it was much appreciated.

Next WLSC event:  The Winter Blahs dinner on February 16 at the Bonefish Grill in Johnson City.
