Frozen Assets Regatta
The cold weather and snow disappeared just in time for this years Frozen Assets regatta. We had good fleet representation across the board considering the weather we had leading up to the event. Hugo B, our youngest competitor was an Opti sailor who celebrated his 8th birthday on Sunday. He did an amazing job on Saturday when the breeze was up!
Over the two day event Mike Turner and his very capable group of race committee volunteers ran at least 11 races in all fleets (the laser fleet had 13 races!). Saturday's breeze started out at about 5 knots and built to 15-18 knots by the end of the day. All our weary sailors were hungry by the end of racing and really enjoyed the great dinner put on by Sharon, Chef and the yacht club staff.
Sunday's breeze was much lighter and trickier (3-5 knots) but Mike and his crew were still able to run quality races for all the fleets. After racing, competitors enjoyed a nice bowl of chili in the club followed by prize giving. All in all....a great event!!
