Ready For Anything

This was Chad Atkins van loaded up for July 4th weekend…. Note the combination of paddle boards and a DN on the roof.

Maybe he heard about some vestige of ice somewhere and was hedging his bets?

Either way it’s time to start thinking about the coming season…..

Think ICE!


Nicklas Muller-Hartburg put this video up of his trip to Lake Baikal last spring- If you are looking for something to take your mind of the summer heat and get you thinking about the upcoming winter sailing season take a look!

J-Class Yachts Racing

Hey Folks- Couldn’t resist sharing this vid of the big J-Class yachts racing in Bermuda. Pretty impressive! Big, heavy, expensive and of course still not as quick as a rusty old Lockley Skimmer but hey, who are we to judge?

Anyway it’s worth a look- and make a note that these boats will be in Newport RI in August 21-26 for their World Championships. Worth a visit and a walk down the dock if you are in the neighborhood!

Think ICE!!!

July 4th in January

From Scott Valentine- An iceboat Fourth Of July!


As ever, take a moment from BBQ, friends, fireworks, traffic, family, and a weekday off and take a moment to reflect on what it took to get this country where it is and how we can make it even better.

Almost as importantly, first ice is about five months away. Get cracking gang!

Hey Gang- don’t know if any ice-related stuff will be there but the Wooden Boat Show at Mystic Seaport is going on- Some nice stuff to see and a good way to kill some time until it starts getting cold again-

Worth checking out if you are in the area!
