The TAYC Penguin Frostbite was held on Saturday, Nov. 5th.† Ten boats competed on a beautiful fall afternoon in a light northwest breeze that was extremely fickle.† Seven one lap windward leeward races were held, with the average race taking around 15 minutes.† The wind was shifting faster than the RC could keep up, so several of the beats turned in to single tack fetches, although puffs, holes, and shifts made even those races unpredictable.† Bill Lawson and his wife Colette Preis got off to a fast start winning the first three races.† Bob Lippincott missed the first race, trying to track down a mainsheet, but came on strong at the end, winning the last four races.† The next six boats had one or more top three finishes and the difference between boats was extremely small, indicating just how competitive the fleet was.† A no-throwout clause in the SIís only affected the top position, as everyone else found themselves invariably at the front of the fleet one race and at the back the next.
