Frostbite Series

Get your foulies and thermal underwear out and join us for the CORA Frostbite Series!  We have five races scheduled starting Saturday, Jan 7th.  Check your CORA Skippers Guide for subsequent dates.  All races will start approximately 1300 at the CYC dock.  Early responses indicate we should have about 20 boats participating in this Series.  We will award trophies for each race, and will be awarding overall Series trophies, so plan on doing all five races!  There will be after-race parties at the Charleston YC for each race, so join the fun!

Given the participation we expect from your responses, we will combine C and D classes into one N Class (purple class flag).  So any non-A and non-B class boats will race together and be scored together in N Class.  Boats can use spinnakers or not at their choice in this class, and will be scored using the appropriate rating, so please advise RC if you will be using spinnaker.


This Series will be scored according to PHRF Time-on-Time method.
