Doyle Sails Frostbite Series races 3 and 4 were frosty for the early starters with wall to wall sunshine and a light Northerly breeze greeting the racers for the second days racing in the aptly named Frostbite series.

In total contrast to the last Sunday out the breeze for race 1 was very light and fickle shifting back and forth as it ran down Southampton water as the boats started at Deans Lake beating for Hovercraft 1. All four classes got away but with the shifty light wind is was debateable whether they would finish the race until it shifted 50 degrees to the east and increased to 10 knots.

Even though they started a minute late Njos, Tim Octons Corby 35 managed to win Class1 Class 2 was won by Jammin the J92 owned by Matt, Pete and Andrew. Class 3 was won by Arabella a new J111 owned by Paul Heys and winning Class 4 was Ellie Ka,Gil and Ginny’s Dehler 36 cws.

With a steady 10knot NE established the second race was back and forth across Soton Water and as long as one had plenty of layers on it was not too cold in the sun. Again all four Classes had clean starts ,although with a little jostling in Class 2, After Barn was the windward mark then up the river before cascading back and forth down to the finish at Deans Lake. All in all just enough before retiring to the warmth of the club which was very busy for the prize giving of bottles of wine and Doyle Sail makers bags.

The more stable wind changed the finishing order and it was J Dream, Kirsty and David Apthorp’s J109 who took the bullet in Class 1 and Glass Onion , Jacob Mackenzie’s Evolution 22 the smallest boat in Class 2 won . Arabella Paul Heys J111 had their second win of the day in Class 3 and in Class 4 Fusion III Will Bridge’s Gibsea 284 took the honours.

Vendee Globe- No tethers in Southern Ocean?
I was interested to see that Seb is wearing neither a pfd nor a harness while racing in the Southern Ocean. Take a look at this pic of Seb Josse racing in the Vendée Globe. He is in the Southern Ocean sailing in rough seas and I imagine he is hitting speeds in the mid-twenties. I know what it’s like to sail down there. I have done numerous Southern Ocean transits and I know it to be an unforgiving region. So I was interested to see that Seb is wearing neither a pfd nor a harness. Interesting.
