The annual Frostbite Regatta, the last regatta of the 2020 season was held on the West Baldwin reservoir on Boxing Day hosted by Manx Sailing & Cruising Club.

This event is a Pursuit Race with a staggered start so slow boats start first and fastest last, very easy for spectators – the boat in the lead when time is up is the winner.

Despite the chilly and gusty conditions 17 boats took to the water for the various different start times in this year’s Pursuit Race, Levi Baugh’s gear failure just before his start time meant Nickolas Ellis was first away at 11:03.  He was almost able to put a full lap in before the Feva of James Allinson got away at 11:10, over the next 10 minutes the rest of the fleet got away and the chase was on.
