About Royal Southampton Yacht Club Frostbite Series

 
The Frostbite is a 12 race Southampton Water Series starting on Sunday 10th January. There are 2 races per day of around 1 hr duration each on the following dates:
 
Sunday 10th January  -  Races 1 & 2
Sunday 24th January  -  Races 3 & 4
Sunday 7th February  -  Races 5 & 6
Sunday 21st February - Races 7 & 8
Saturday 5th March    -  Races 9 & 10
Saturday 12th March  -  Races 11 & 12
 
The series is open to all-comers and both IRC and Club rated boats drawing up to 2.5 metres. This round the cans, fast action competition is the perfect start to the new season and a great way to get boats and crews in shape for the 2015 racing season ahead.
 
The racing takes place in Southampton Water over short courses with two races scheduled each day. It is brilliant racing: the topography of Southampton Water and the prevailing wind direction means that course legs are usually very short and there are numerous mark-roundings. The races are sailed in flat water, so no nasty winter waves over the deck and this means that your crew are constantly busy and involved so they will stay warm and focussed whatever the weather.
 
Crews then are welcomed back to the RSYC Ocean Village clubhouse for the day's results, prizes and a well-earned hot lunch.
