Southampton Frostbite Series Race 7 and 8, sponsored by Doyle Sailmakers.

All to play for in this Series

It was fresh bright sunny morning with a moderate breeze from West to NorthWest and a rapidly ebbing tide which set the challenge for the race management team this week.

With the committee boat near Hover 1 all four Classes were sent off to Royal Southampton buoy newly laid after its winter overhaul before continuing round laid marks before cascading back down to the finish at Netley.

Class 1 saw NJOS, a Corby 35 win with a good margin over Malice, a HOD 35. In Class 2 Blazer, a Laser 28, took the honours by only 4 sec. on Jammin a J92. Class 3 – Jammy, a J80 won with Vader, a Cork 1720 runner up and Class 4 Fusion III, a Gibsea 284 was first beating Escapade, a First 305 into second place.

The ebbing tide caught a couple of hapless skippers out who parked on the putty between races but both managed to escape and get started on a reconfigured course after the wind veered enabling a wind ward – leeward course to be set for the first time this series however as all those avid meteorologists know it was a front going through that caused the wind shift and with it came rain. Lots of it and heavy!

After timid starts in Race 7, Class 2 were all up for the start this time and there were three OCS unlike some starters in the classes who were a minute late.

It was J Dream, a J109‘s turn to win Class 1 with NJOS second. Class 2 saw J92’s take 1, 2 and 3 J’ronimo, Blackjack then Wizard. Class 3 saw a reversal with Vader first and Jammy second. Class 4 was again won by Fusion III this time second was Ellie, a Dheler 36cws.

With two races to go on the last day of the Frostbite it’s all to play for with only Class 2 first place decided.

Blue skies, sunshine, 23 deg C, clean air, and the whole place looks as if has put on a party frock and got lit up. Wonderful.
