MYC Frostbite fleet season has begun!
We know it is November by that familiar look on Sunday afternoon of a fleet of Dyer Dhows sailing out of the harbor. To paraphrase the Talking Heads, you may ask yourself. . . self, who are those hearty sailors on those little boats, and you may find yourself behind the tiller of a small one-design dingy.
The Milford Frostbite Association is a winter sailing fleet under the auspices of the Milford Yacht Club, Fleet Captain. They sail 9′ Dyer Dhows in 2 Winter sessions; the 1st half runs from the 1st weekend in November to early January. The 2nd half begins in January and ends mid March. This is an excellent fleet, winner of 2017 Ice Cub regatta, and always offering a “warm” welcome to new members. Look for them on Sunday’s in the dry sail area, near the hoists.
To get started, either stop by in person and ask for Fleet Captain Julia Carter, or send an email in advance to her at jlglcarter at yahoo dot com.
