SID Frostbite Involvement
Frostbites are winter dinghy races run in Dun Laoghaire by the Dun Loaghaire Motor Yacht Club(DMYC).
Racing is every Sunday for approximately one hour with the starting gun at 1.30. Racing runs from the start of November to end of March.
Sailing In Dublin Club enters a number of boats and encourages all members to take part. The nominal entry fee is split between those taking part, and crew positions as assigned on a rota. Less experienced crew are paired with old hands, so everybody gets to take part. The frostbites are a relaxed fun event and a great introduction to dinghy racing.
Participants are honorary members of the DMYC for the day so you can have a hot shower, hot soup and even hot port after racing. Racing is limited to one hour so it's just a case of wearing a little more gear than you would in Summer.
For more details please see our Frostbite Racing Guide
