2017 Frostbite Series

For 2017, the WCSC Cruising Fleet is bringing in some changes to our Annual Commodore’s Cup and Frostbite Regatta series.


The schedule of events has been expanded to 4 events, beginning on New Year’s Day with the Commodore’s Cup, followed by January 14, February 11th and culminates with the Bud Light Cup on February 25th. Skippers meetings will be @1100 with First horn @ 1230.


We’ll be using courses based on government buoys.  While this series is somewhat ‘informal’, it’s an excellent opportunity for cruisers to stretch their skills mid-winter.  We’ll keep our series records for crowning the champions at our 2018 Annual banquet! Lighter racing craft will be judged separately from cruisers.  

The Frostbite series is open to all sailors willing to brave the cold.  We’ll be taking more than the wind into consideration when determining the course, if it’s a particularly frigid day we’ll be opting for a much shorter course, and on warmer opportunities, stretch it out a bit.  We don’t want our volunteer Race Committee to be freezing their buns off any longer than needed, while we’re having fun sailing!  


Lake Hartwell presents some of the best wind of the year during the Frostbite season.  We hope you’ll find the spark it takes to start the New Year out on the proper tack – Sailing!


Look forward to seeing many of you there!

2016 Hospice Regatta - SUCCESS!

We did it! We raised over $82,000 dollars. Woooooooooo! Thank you to everyone who attended, supported, donated and helped us reach and exceed our goal this year. Without your help we would not have been able to reach the goal.
The event was a light air affair with all fleets able to get in races on Saturday and Sunday, thanks to great PRO work. Randy Lenz is the 2016 Champion. He won the PHRF D fleet and then won the overall championship. Randy will represent us in the National Hospice Alliance Regatta. Complete results are posted here.
Catie Foley from Hospice made a nice video recap of the event that you need to see and Marc Bailey created a nice drone video that you can check out on Youtube from Sunday.
