Sunday 12th December is the last series race of the year bringing the 2010 Frostbite series to its conclusion, then a few weeks off before our annual Boxing Day race. Its one race starting at 11:00 followed by some mince pies before heading back home to finish off the turkey sandwiches. Its then another break from sailing at Paxton Lakes SC until mid February when the sailing season will start again, although there will be the working parties and AGM during the sailing break so there is still a reason to jump in your car and come down to the club.
Just because the racing at Paxton takes a short break in the new year doesn't mean you can't keep your hand in. There are a number of winter handicaps at clubs not very far from Paxton.
