The Frostbite Cup: it all started in 2015…

It was an initiative of some J/80 sailors from R&ZV Naarden to start a winter competition. It soon became apparent that there was a lot of enthusiasm for this and (15) J/80s appeared at the start every month. But at the Frostbite Cup there are now about 30 J/80s eager to start and compete. With a large international occupancy, this is the largest unit class that sails in winter.

The up & down competitions for the J/80s take place in the middle of the Gooimeer and because it is winter and there is no weed, we can use the entire Gooimeer to create a fantastic competition track. The dates have been chosen in such a way that you can also go on skiing with your family like most other people in the Netherlands.

The first start will take place at 11 a.m. exactly and a minimum of 1 and a maximum of 3 up-down races will be sailed per Sunday. We aim to make each match 45-60 minutes. At the end of the competitions there will be a prize ceremony, and the bar is open.
