Tight Finish to Frostbite Series

As we go into the last weekend of the Frostbites it is looking like it is going to be a very tight finish between Howard and Helen/Jo in the National 12, Bill in his Solo and Denis and Jo in the Heron. Two good results in the two last races on Sunday would mean that any of the three boats could take the Series and the glory !

If you are not sailing yourself come down and watch the final outcome, racing at 12.00 and 2.00.
I hope someone is good at working out tie breaks !
And let’s hope the weather does not spoil the fun ! 
Action from last Sundays racing
