Midwinters Factoid

Is it too cold and windy to frostbite in February?

Since 1996, frostbite regattas in Annapolis (4 Midwinters and 1 Nationals) have never missed a single day’s racing. On average, the Annapolis IC Fleet misses less than 2 days racing per year due to bad weather. These statistics make Annapolis the most reliable location for frostbiting on the East Coast. The Annapolis Midwinter’s regattas generally run over 20 races in a weekend, or 10 races per division.

A few past winning skippers of the IC Midwinters include:

  • Ed Adams
  • Andy Pimental
  • Neal Fowler
  • Bill Hardesty
  • Jim Bowers
  • Tim Healy
  • Bill Healy
