Frostbite Series 2016 - Race 5 Results

06 Mar 2016 8:30 PM | Benjamin Ward

I'd rather be sailing than working any day, that's for sure.  Today we had a mix of clouds and sun, which made for a pleasant day on the water, even if the wind was ridiculously shifty (even for the reservoir).  Our RC was patient with the light, puffy air and managed to squeeze out a few races. One thing we were missing today was more boats!  

We would like to once again say thank you to our guest race committee volunteers, Debbie C. and Mosbey W. of FBYC for their help. And on that note, I'd like to put in a plug to all GRSA members to sign up in advance to help with race committee duty using our new RC Volunteer sign-up sheet.  See all the races on the calendar for 2016 and sign up early.  It's a great way to enjoy a day on the water and get a close-up view of the action!

We hope everyone will mark their calendar and make a point to join us for the final race of the 2016 GRSA Frostbite Series, Sunday March 20th. Also, bring an appetizer or crockpot dish and when the racing is done, we'll enjoy the refreshments and give out awards for the Top 3 finishers of the series.

Here are the results from today's races:
