Chichester Yacht Club Frozen Toe Series - Day 1

by Mark Green 11 Nov 2021 15:22 GMT 7 November 2021

It was great to be able to welcome visitors back to CYC's Frozen Toe winter series. The Frozen Toe runs up to Christmas, followed by the Snowflake series in January/February.

The weather on Sunday was perfect for November with bright sunshine and a fresh wind, with some interesting gusts to add spice. The race officer Nick Eliman, set an M shaped course with two beats and a fast reach to the leeward mark.

Over 30 boats signed on for the event, with a strong medium fleet of 18 boats.

In the fast fleet the RS400 of Neil Bevington and Alan Skeens from Lee-on-Solent led the way over the water, but CYC's Roger Millet in his Hadron H2 took the first race on handicap. After the two races, Neil and Alan led the fleet by a point.

In the medium fleet, the RS Aero 7s took the wins on both races, but the results were shared between the four Aeros. CYC's Andy Palmer-Felgate took the first race, and Felpham's Callum Aldus the second. After two races the top of the table had three boats on 6 points, Felpham's Andy Conway and Richard Bentley and Dell Quay's Mark Harper.

In the slow fleet Felpham's Joshua James took the first race, and CYC's Seth Swain took the second race. Joshua had a one point lead after two races.

The full results for the first day can be found at

The next Frozen Toe is on the 21st November, with the first start at 11am.
