Winter 2011 Series

  Review of the Winter Series
 

Ronan Cull mid-tack
 
In one of the most competitive Frostbite series in many years, Ronan Cull ended the series as clear winner, discarding a second place in the 11 race series.

Conditions were very consistent throughout the series with winds mostly in the 10-14kt range, the exception being the weekend of the 27th November which gave the fleet one day of fast sailing in winds of over 20kts.

The minor places were all up for grabs on the final day with Evan Dolan (NYC)starting the day in a comfortable second but David Quinn, Colm Cunningham and Ronan Kenneally (RCYC) all within a couple of points of third.

In the end, Dolan scored a second and fourth to consolidate his second place overall.
 
Cunningham had an uncharacteristic seventh place in the first race to effectively put him out of contention for third leaving it up to Quinn and Kenneally to fight it out for the last podium spot in the final race. With two points between them, Kenneally had to put two boats between himself and Quinn, which was the case on the final run after a capsize by Conor Greagsby.

However, Greagsby recovered well to pass Kenneally again before the final mark and with only one place separating them, this allowed David Quinn to take third overall, with Kenneally in fourth and Cunningham in fifth.

Radial Fleet

In the Radial Fleet it was a Malahide clean sweep with Alex Shackleton winning, Sean Anglim second and Ciaran Costello third.

The final two races were a fitting close finish to a great series with boats travelled from Dun Laoghaire, Skerries, Wexford, Cork and Malahide to compete.
