Not to be confused with the PHRF Winter Series, the Schmid Frostbite Series is the Laser Fleet's component of the HIYC Winter festivities. The series is named for Rob Schmid, a committed sailor who helped to build the Laser fleet at HIYC and PPYC. Rob is pictured here on the old inflatable runabout, running the Race Committee, circa 1990.
During the Winter, the temperatures on Old Hickory Lake drop and the wind picks up. Because of this, only the bravest (craziest?) souls with good wet or dry suits dare to compete in the Frostbite. This series runs on Sundays from early January through the end of February. Suit up and come join the fun!
