2015 YRA Frostbite Championship

Fotis Boliakis, Norwalk YC wins the 2015 YRA Frostbite Championship


The Yacht Racing Association of Long Island Sound (YRALIS) held their 2015 Frostbite Championship on Saturday, April 18 at the Beach Point Yacht Club in Mamaroneck, NY, in weather that was definitely not your typical frostbiting weather.  Eleven teams from Long Island, Westchester and Connecticut raced in oscillating winds under bright blue skies, a warm sun and temperatures in the 60’s.  What a wonderful respite from the harsh winter that kept many of our frostbiters from racing this past season.

This regatta was first held in 1954 and is sailed in a one-person, 9-foot boat called the Dyer Dhows.  The first winner of the perpetual W.J.H. Dyer Frostbite Trophy was awarded to the late Jack Sutphen, who raced over at Larchmont YC for many years before moving out west.

It was the Mamaroneck Frostbite Association that, once again, organized and ran this regatta.  Hats off to Race Committee Chair, Bahar Gidwani, and his team who did an excellent job of getting 10 races completed in very difficult wind conditions with lots of big shifts to challenge the skippers.
