New Years Day Frostbite Regatta


A group of hardy souls from the Fifty Point Model Sailors were joined by sailors from Confederation Marine Modelers and Metro Marine Modelers on a comparatively mild and bright New Year’s Day, sailing their boats on 16 Mile Creek at the Oakville Yacht Squadron.  This fun Frostbite event has become the annual First Regatta of the Year for Club sailors, who were soon to be deprived of soft water for a few months.

Hosted by the Oakville Yacht Squadron, the event proved to be very enjoyable, as the participating Victorias and Dragon Force boats had good clear open water with a steady breeze in the sheltered Swan Cove.  Thanks are due to the Oakville Yacht Squadron for hosting the Regatta and providing the Sailors with an enjoyable informal lunch in The Crow’s Nest in the Club House.
