Frostbite sailing results

The Shellback Dinghy Frostbiters encourage beginner or experienced sailors to join them for informal short-course racing on Sunday mornings. Come down and watch or help on the Race Committee boat. Boats are available to use. One boat is for sale.

Frostbiters got another sunny day in the 40s for sailing on Dec. 3. After 20 minutes of no wind and drifting north to the bridge on a strong incoming tide, a light southwesterly filled in. Race Committee Dick

Allphin and Isabelle Coyle set up a windward/leeward course off of the southeast corner of the Conanicut Marina pier. Wind shifts off the shore created race leaders on the left side of the course and then the right side, which kept the racing close. In all, five races were held. John Horton was low scorer for the day with 9 points, John Quinn second with 11 points, Joe Logan third with 15 points, Jack Hubbard fourth with 17 points, and Terry Jones fifth with 23 points.
