The 2016 Frostbite series is so far an undoubted success and has attracted a greater number of entries than anticipated, especially with respect to the
number of ‘on-the-day entries’.
It is disappointing to turn anyone away and we wish to encourage all keen sailors to take part and so rather than declaring the entries closed as we have reached our stated maximum of 120 (which we anticipate includes dormant and subsequent no show entries), we are taking a pragmatic view to allow further entries while expecting to be able to manage the number of boats on the water. In the longer term we will look to encourage series entries such that we can balance fleets and start numbers.
For the remainder of the 2016 Frostbite series:-
The management team, whilst recognising the inconvenience of weekly booking, wish to give an opportunity to all local sailors to have the opportunity to experience the Alton Water Frostbite series.
We are pleased to announce that our 2016 RYA Training Courses have now been released for bookings.
As always there are courses for all age groups from 5 years old upwards for both dinghy sailing and windsurfing.
Many courses are very popular and fill up quickly, so check out our courses to be sure of getting a place for your budding sailor!
The 2016 Frostbite series is an 18 race series with 2 races being held back-to-back each Sunday between 3rd January and 28th February 2016 (weather permitting).
The first races of the 2016 Frostbite series will be held on Sunday 3rd January 2016, first start no earlier than 11am.
This is always a very popular series, so to ensure entry, please complete pre-entry and pay on-line.
In addition to on-line pre-entry and payment, a completed entry form must be submitted on first registration for the series. An entry form can be downloaded here.
Our Frostbite Series is very popular, and Alton Water is looking for anyone that has RYA Power Boat Level 2 or above to help on rescue boats.
