These films lay in a box in his son’s garage for some 30 years.They were finally re discovered and professionally put onto DVD by the John Adam’s renowned Penzance based SSS films company. Read more
Frostbite 8 – thanks again to Giles Gilbert for the report
In this penultimate race in the Frostbite series, 25 boats launched into Penzance Harbour to do battle in a 15 – 20 knot easterly. We enjoyed the company and commitment of our friends from Mounts Bay SC. The fleets consisted of 3 Mirrors, 6 Lasers, 6 Enterprises and 10 Handicap boats comprising of Osprey, Lark, Rs200, 420, Solo, Rs100 and a GP14.
We watched the forecast with some foreboding last week. The lead up to our first annual Pirate Pursuit race threatened sporting, even ominous conditions and yet, on Sunday, a gathering of 28 boats braved the elements to head out on the course set by Race Officer Mike Winiberg. An olympic course in front of the Promenade then over to windward- leeward marks nearer the club tested the endurance over the two and a half hour race.
