Lawrence entered the Alton Water Frostbite series to get some winter sailing. The racing was on the fresh water reservoir and this year had strong winds which led to some cancelled days and other very difficult days. Lawrence capsized in 3 races with the boat going inverted on 2 occasions leading to retirement from 2 races. He still came third overall in the ‘Fast handicap’ fleet, as some boats dropped out of more of the races than he did.

They often had volunteer photographers around the course who posted photos on Facebook on the Sunday evening. It was great to review the photos after getting home, warm and fed after racing. Here is a small selection of the photos, some are from the onboard GoPro Hero7 mounted on the back of the boom on Lawrence’s Hadron H2. There was a good turn out with 60 boats entered across 3 fleets.
