ASM KInsale Frostbite Series
|Date||22nd January, 2012 - 26th February, 2012|
The 2012 season starts for dinghies and Squib keelboats with the ASM sponsored Kinsale Yacht Club Frostbite Series. Over six Sundays in Late Jaunary and February about sixty sailors will enjoy short sharp races on the Bandon River in the shadow of Kinsale's famous Charles Fort.
Racing will feature starts for all singlehanded Laser classes, mixed dinghies and Squibs. Three races are scheduled for each class every weekend. If the full programme is sailed over the six weeks that will see 18 starts for each class, a perfect way for crews to get back into racing and be sharp when the open meeting seasons start in the Spring.
Sailing instructions are issued on 22 January at the club. Entry fees are modest and include mooring and dinghy park space for all competitors. Hot food will be laid on in the club after racing.
