Frostbiting Week 12 Recap: 2020-2021

In Frostbiting by Front Desk

Hello Frostbiters,   Well the wind gods were finally on our side for a Saturday.  You know I almost jinxed it beforehand, but this past Saturday was some of the best wind we’ve had since all the way back in Week 2.  But before we could go sailing, we had to shovel.  Starting on Thursday night we had about 30 …

Frostbiting Valentine’s Day Recap: 2020-2021

In Frostbiting by Front Desk

Hello Frostbiters,   Well it certainly didn’t look promising at the start, but by the end of the day we had five great races in the books!  After an hour delay due to a complete lack of wind and a tanker we decided to head out.  I don’t think anyone was super optimistic when we left the dock that anything …

In Frostbiting by Front Desk

Hello Frostbiters,   For the second time this season we had winds at the very upper edge of what our boats can handle.  While most people wouldn’t even consider going for a walk in that kind of weather, we had twenty-two (!!!) boats on the line for some pretty extreme winter sailing.  Temperatures that day were an improvement on the …

In Frostbiting by Front Desk

Hello Frostbiters,   Another great week in the books!  This time we had some bone-chilling temperatures, but that didn’t stop nineteen hardy teams from showing up and battling it out over four (very tough) races.  Lucky for us this week the wind speed was a bit less extreme.  If it had been the same wind as Week 8 but with …

In Frostbiting by Front Desk

Hello Frostbiters,   You may recall that after Week 2 I said something to the effect of “you can’t really call this frostbiting.”  Well after this week, I don’t think there is any doubt as to why we call this Frostbiting.  On our most challenging day of the year by far, we had a full fleet with twenty-two boats on …

Frostbiting Week 6 Recap: 2020-2021

In Frostbiting by Front Desk

Hello Frostbiters,   Because Week 5 was cancelled due to a lack of breeze, and coupled with our usual holiday break, it had been four weeks since we’ve been able to go racing.  But luckily for us we had terrific (and frustrating) conditions on the course all day long.  To start we had sunshine, which is always a welcome thing.  High …

In Frostbiting by Caitlyn Ridgely

Hello Frostbiters,   Have you dried out and warmed up yet?  Week 4 was not for the faint of heart, but we still managed to have seventeen boats on the line for another great week of racing, despite some “less than ideal” conditions.  We had light and variable winds.  We had a ton of current ripping from left to right.  …

In Frostbiting by Caitlyn Ridgely

amazing job running races (like always). Course was square to the shifts, we got a ton of racing, and you made the right call ending at six races, as everyone was COOKED. And you know I LOVED the cinqo de corso at the end. current was ebbing all day (nearly a knot at times???), making it hard to approach the …
