On October 14 and 15 the Lightning Fleet held its end of season grand finale regatta - the Frigid Digit! It was a great event this year with unusual not so frigid conditions with temperatures in the 70s, that made for a perfect weekend of sailing. Over the two days our RC (thank you Joe Friebele!) Was able to get off 7 excellent races. Saturday's conditions were on the lighter side, with Sunday getting into the 10-12 knot range. There were 13 boats in attendance with tight racing all weekend.

Saturday evening there was a delicious Italian dinner and social - thank you Bonnie Kelly for chairing the regatta! Winning the event was Ched Proctor and crew, followed by 3 SSA boats: Steve Constants in second, Craig Cobbum in third, and Jon Guth in fourth. Congratulations to all the winners! Thank you everyone who travelled to our event, and we look forward to another great regatta next year!
