Frostbite in the wind

The Frostbite series lived up to its name today, 8’C may sound warm but in the wind it didn’t feel it. The race (only one was run) started in a moderate breeze with some vicious gusts, but it was near the end the wind kicked in with a vengeance at 30 knots or Force 7 gust. About three boats stayed upright.

During the racing I took the little Rigiflex and here are some photos, missed most of the capsizes I am afraid (though those concerned may not be worried!!) well done to all who went out and especially the youngsters with many completing the course in testing conditions.

PS: the wind meter is now up and running again (battery issue)
