At Ballyholme Yacht Club, they call it the Icebreaker- it's for dinghies - and at Strangford Lough Yacht Club, they call it the Frostie Series (it's for big boats). The club lies on the eastern shore of Strangford Lough in Whiterock Bay in Northern Ireland and is looking forward to running the 2021 Frostie Series. Racing begins this coming Saturday (18th September) and ends on 16th October.

The long-running Frostie Series is one of the most popular events of the year, and it is hoped to have a big turnout to mark the end of another brilliant season sailing at Whiterock. There will be racing for IRC 1 (0.950 & over), IRC 2 (0.949 & under,) NHC 1 NHC 2, NHC 1 Restricted Sail, NHC 2 Restricted Sai, Sonatas and RS Elites.

The late entry fee has now kicked in, and registration closes at the end of this week. But with 35 boats entered already and 40 expected, there is still time to join this big fleet for some exciting racing to end the season.

We've got a favour to ask

More people are reading Afloat.ie than ever thanks to the power of the internet but we're in stormy seas because advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. Unlike many news sites, we haven’t put up a paywall because we want to keep our marine journalism open.

Afloat.ie is Ireland's only full–time marine journalism team and it takes time, money and hard work to produce our content.

So you can see why we need to ask for your help.

If everyone chipped in, we can enhance our coverage and our future would be more secure. You can help us through a small donation. Thank you.
