WCSC Frostbite Series 2020
Welcome to the WCSC Frostbite Series for 2020! The Frostbite is a pursuit start race series open to all sailors and boats and is a great way to enjoy your club and your boat over the winter months without the formality of windward-leeward buoy racing.
If you haven’t tried a pursuit race before, government navigation buoys are used for course marks, and boats receive staggered start times based on their PHRF ratings so the slower boats start first, followed by faster boats. This eliminates all those crowds at the start. It also adds a 'fun factor' to the race because you can see exactly how you’re doing against the competition: the first boat to the finish wins, simple as that.
There will be soup or chili served at the clubhouse after each race to top off the day.
Races are scheduled for 1 Jan, 4 Jan, 11 Jan, 25 Jan, 15 Feb, and 22 Feb.
Skippers' meeting is at 11:00. At that time we will decide which course to sail and explain the pursuit start.
If you haven't raced in one of the Club's pursuit start races, the Beginner's Guide explains how to participate. You are advised to download and print the Sailing Instructions, Race Map, and the Buoy and Course List.
