Essex, CT – In the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy, when all was back to normal for Frostbite Yacht Club sailors, the group decided to do their part for those in need.  A non-perishable food drive was organized by the club’s high school 420 fleet and held on November 11, resulting in a boat load of donations being delivered to the Shoreline Soup Kitchen and Pantries in Old Saybrook.

The Frostbite Yacht Club, open to any sailor age 15 and older, is a volunteer organization that hosts multi-week race series in the late fall and early spring.  For more information, go to www.fbyc.org
