7: Today was the second to last Sunday of the Frostbiting season. We had a light air day with long down wind legs bucking heavy current. I didn't win any races today but being consistent paid off and I won the day.
FBYC Frostbiting has been going on in Essex since about 1933 in a variety of classes. The Laser class has been part of the action since 1975. Sure would be nice if we could get a Hobie 14 fleet going.

6: I'm starting out the 2008 sailing season with some Laser sailing in Essex CT. The series is run by the Frostbite Yacht Club and sailed out of the Essex Yacht Club on the Connecticut river.
I've just recently gotten back into Laser sailing to extend my season a little bit.
Series results are at: fbyc.org
