South Windermere Sailing Club's long established open frostbite series will run over 7 Sundays from 23rd October thru 4th December. All are welcome!

Two races per day (race 1 and race 2), back to back, with the start of the first race at 12:00.

There will be prizes for the race 1 series, race 2 series, and winner overall of the combined series.

It's a great opportunity to visit SWSC in its new beautiful location at the YMCA Lakeside North Camp.

The club will of course provide its usual friendly welcome, and bacon butties will be available before racing.

Entries can be for the whole series (£40 double hander, £30 single hander - including boat parking), or on the day (£15 / £10).
