Frostbite #6 (Bud Light Cup)



Frostbite Race #6
Bud Light Cup
      Welcome to the WCSC Frostbite Series for 2024! 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.


     The 24 Feb. race is the Bud Light Cup. The winner will have his (her?) name added to the prepetual trophy house in the clubhouse trophy case. The after-race social will feature a hot meal provided by George Masson. This is a great opportunity to warm up at the fireplace and talk trash about the day’s racing. 

      Check-in and final registration begin at 10:30. Please check in with Rick (the guy with the computer) as you enter the main room of the Clubhouse. He will need to enter your boat into the delay-time spreadsheet before the skippers’ meeting gets started. You are advised to download and print the Sailing InstructionsLake Map, and the Buoy and Course List, as these will not be provided at the skippers’ meetingFor those who are new to sailboat racing, the Sailing Instructions contain race details that a skipper must know in order to sail the race. If you are new to the Club’s pursuit start races, you may wish to read A Beginner’s Guide to the Frostbite Series. These documents can be found in the Frostbite Series 2024 folder on the Club website:
