Academy Frostbite Day 3 Report
Academy Frostbite Day 3 Report

Fog, rain and the prospect of no wind greeted competitors in the final day of the Royal Southern Academy Frostbite Series. Despite the conditions, the fleet were able to locate the race course that the committee had managed to set in the building 6 - 8 knots of breeze.
Racing for both J/70 and J/80 classes got away promptly. With the prospect of the spring series starting the following day, the J/70 starts were keen, X-Ray being displayed on several occasions. The J/80's pushed the starts slightly less - perhaps they were having issues locating the line in the now dense fog!
