Scouts are out and about
Small and larger groups have been scouting all week. Drive bys, walk ons and sailing parties all looking for that perfect plate. Some have been rejected outright as having too many hazards others small areas of smooth ice surrounded by boat breaking rough area.
Sailing / scouting parties will be out on Long Pond in Lakeville, MA Friday morning and we look forward to getting reports for the weekend. Another group will be scouting Ninigret Pond in Charlestown, RI. With warming temperatures, Ninigret’s salt ice may not survive into the weekend’s weather.
The real gem for the week is the NY side of Champlain off Platsburgh. Check out the pictures taken by Bill Buchholz on http://iceboat.me if you have not already. DN’s and Skeeters should find plenty of ice for all out racing.
More updates as they come in tomorrow.
Remember any ice warrants caution especially as temperatures rise,
