Frostbite

Hello Frostbiters,

With just two weeks left in the season, Courageous is looking to continue our string of great race days with 5+ races per day. The weather is looking gorgeous! Temps will be in the mid 40s, sunny, with a steady breeze around 10 knots from the NW. I look forward to seeing you all out there on the nicest day we will have this week!

Hello Frostbiters!

Today's weather serves as a not-so-pleasant reminder of how lucky we were for the sun, light but steady wind, and warm conditions that we experienced this past Saturday. My summary of events will be brief, as this week we have a highly entertaining guest blog from Cole Constantineau. This past Saturday wrapped up our "Winter Series." Next weekend will be our Valentine's Day Regatta - this means there will be normal sailing, but it does not count for series scores, so bring your sweetheart and have some fun with it!

Hello Frostbiters!

It went by quickly, but we are done with the Fall Series! Five weeks went by in no time! Thanks to everyone for coming out and participating, and it was good to see the turnout at Pier 6 for our awards. Thanks so much to Pier 6 for hosting us and continuing to provide a wonderful (and warm) place for us to gather after sailing! We owe them for those wonderful appetizers this past week. Congratulations to our series winners! In 1st place is Mark Lindsay and Jim Watson with a guest appearance this week by Alexander Watson. In 2nd place is Chris Palmieri, Gretchen Curtis, and Amy Fater. And taking 3rd place is Matt Marston, Cheney Brand, and Dan Sexton. A link to the series’ results, as well as the day’s results, can be found below. For those who didn’t make it to Pier 6 after racing, I want to recount a special award that was added to the series.
