Frostbite races are running again in the winter of 2022-23, and we are delighted to have Viking Marine on board as a sponsor again this year.
We try to hold racing on most Sundays from November through to March, weather permitting. This year, we hope to run a special “Christmas Cracker” event on 27 December. You can find news and updates here, or on our Facebook page.
The races are intended for mono-hull dinghies, but we may allow other light craft that can race safely on the same course as the dinghies.
The normal Frostbite racing is scheduled on Sundays, with the first start at 14:00. We normally have two races each day, if the weather allows, but we might have three races on a really nice day! Racing usually takes place inside Dun Laoghaire harbour, with permission from the Harbour Master. In good conditions, we might venture outside the harbour, but not too far away. The courses may be triangular, windward-leeward or a mix of the two.
Racing is divided into two series:
- Series 1: 6 November to 18 December 2022
- Series 2: 1 January to 26 March 2023
Entries are still open – see the entry form below.
This will be a special race, not part of the Frostbite series, and will have an earlier start, at 13:00 on 27 December. The course will probably be something different!
The Notice of Race covers the Viking Marine Frostbite Series and the Christmas Cracker event.
The Sailing Instructions cover the Frostbite Series only – there will be separate sailing instructions for the Christmas Cracker event.
