Frostbite Series Results Are In

Just checked the board at the club and the results are in for the Frostbite series. We managed a 6th place overall for the series!

The series ended with a neck in neck finish with another boat, that turns out was in our division. On the water we were the leeward boat and our sight of the line was obscured (that was the race with the shortened line where the makeshift pin was a boat from the fleet. When the horn went off and, 5 seconds later it went off again I thought we were the latter horn and lost the race. Turns out we were the ones that crossed first and we did not owe our competition time!

Great job crew! Looking forward to next season already!

How many boats are included in your series? What are you futire plans/tactics to maybe better your placement. Any Goals for the team next year?

We have roughly 40 boats in the fleet and 10 in our division. While not first place finishes this year I am happy with the overall standing.

Considering it was the first year with this boat and the crew (most of which are new to racing), it is a respectable finish.

I have no doubt that in the next year we will be finishing consistently in the top 3-4 spots as the crew finds their groove.

I will be continuing to build on and develop tactics strategies throughout the winter for this particular course. Think I will also go over my race notes and times from the years results and crunch some more data. Get a good broad picture of the races and how the competition sailed. Know your competition is a good goal!

Thanks John, not sure. Have had a few comments and suggestions and they are definitely welcomed. Hope in the future to have more as the blog grows and readership expands.
