Brangiforte Takes Barrington Frostbite Series, Woodman Wins at Bolton Lake
Posted May 22, 2015
As seems to happen every year, the Barrington Frostbite series -- sailed over 18 weeks with 64 races scored -- came down to the final (often goofy) race up the Barrington River. Bill Brangiforte won that race, with Andy David finishing 2nd to end the series with scoring averages of 2.9 and 2.96, respectively. Scott Greenbaum was 3rd with a 3.95 average.
High Schooler Erin Abbot won the "B" Fleet with an average of 8.32, while Les Johnston took home the award for top Master.
For the Spring Season, Brangiforte was also 1st, followed by David and Eric Woodman with averages of 2.71, 2.87 and 3.39. John Coen won the Spring B Fleet and Johnston was top Master.
The BYC were great hosts, keeping us safe and warn (ashore anyway) and thanks are due to the race committee and Fleet Captain Ken (and Mary) Charles.
On May 17 at Bolton Lake, Woodman had a late surge, winning 2 of the final 3 races (a total of 7 were held). Ken Charles, who finished 2nd, had been leading the day throughout after a pair of bullets early, but Woodman was able to sneak by him in the final race. Brangiforte was 3rd.
Conditions were typical Bolton Lake: Light, spotty and super shifty.
Thank you to the Bolton Lake Sailing Club for running a fun and competitve event on a beautiful Sunday!
