For the first day of 2010 Frozen racing, winter roared in working on a winter storm, with white caps, dark blue water, and a very push wind from the North to challenge the Frozen Skippers.

After  papers, sorting out the storage rigs and lockers,  and getting the skippers' meeting done, Frozen Race Committee (Stuart, Ray, Jonathan) ran  5 quick races, with 4 boats on starting line (Fauss, Dave W, Dave S, and Jeff) . Two more skippers (Catherine and Doug) checked in, took the opportunity to test their rigs but not to compete.  And two other skippers got papers and boats lined up for next week.

The racing was brisk.  In Race 5, Jeff flipped (with a call-out of the safety boat with Stuart and Baci dog aboard), but after a pause, got back to sailing again and was scored second for the race.  Overall for the day, after five races, Dave W, took the top daily slot, then flipped at the dock after landing,  and emerged, victoriously covered with mud - - and still smiling.

Street-side, pairs of spectators from the neighborhood stopped in their jogging tracks, visited the Club, and came out on the dock to watch the action and, for one finish, to cheer on The Frozen Few as we got the SunFish racing season off to a great start! 

Next week's Race Committee Skipper: Dave W.
