FROSTBITE SERIES

The Frostbite Yacht Club (FBYC) and the Essex Yacht Club have a long close relationship dating back to March 4-5, 1933 when the first Eastern Frostbite Dinghy Regatta was held on the Connecticut River. This regatta was the genesis of the Essex Yacht Club. Continuing to present day the Connecticut River Frostbite Squadron at Essex holds Spring and Fall Frostbite racing from EYC. The fleet consists of Etchells, Ideal 18s, JY15s, Lasers and 420s sailed by the Valley Regional Sailing Club.

2017 Schedule:
Fall Frostbite begins Sunday, October 1 and ends Sunday, November 26. The EYC Club Ideal 18s are available for charter to members who would like to participate in what is usually some of the best and most competitive racing of the year. Look for our email announcements or contact Renny Schoonmaker, our Ideal 18 Program Chair, for more information.

The tentative 2018 Spring Frostbite Series is Sunday, March 4 thru Sunday, April 29.
