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:

Today was another good day of sailing and Frostbiting at GRSA, even if the temps weren't very frosty...but hey, we're certainly not complaining! We had a great turn-out, with a total of 7 Flying Scots in the fleet. The winds behaved in their typical up, down, and all around fashion. Special thanks to our awesome guest race committee volunteers, Debbie C. and Mosbey W. of FBYC, who managed to squeeze out 3 windward/leeward races before the rain started.
Lastly, a quick reminder to check out the GRSA race schedule and sign up to help out with race committee using our new RC Volunteer sign-up sheet.

2015 GRSA Around the Island Results:
We had great weather for our 2015 Around The Island Race with a total of 12 boats competing. This was a handicap race and one of the closest in recent memories, with all boats finishing within about 5 minutes of each other, after more than three and a half hours of racing!
The Frostbite Series is a series of 6 scheduled regattas (2 were cancelled this year due to weather. Races were held from January through March, and the final cumulative results are below. Congrats to our overall winning team of Wake and Wittemore!
