Western Challenge, Day One
Some good sailing out here in Wisconsin! Very good ice and decent breeze saw about five races done- Over seventy boats showed up so we have good racing in Gold and Silver fleets-
Some real talent in the Gold and some classics in the Silver! Put this one on your list for next year…
Enough speed and rig bending going on to remind us all why we make the trip!
New England showing well, see the Four Lakes Ice Yacht Club website for results.
Great as yesterday was I have to say that there are a lot of dinged and damaged boats- Not sure why but there were more than the normal number of scrapes and bumps- Maybe early in the season, I dunno. All I can say keep your eyes open and sail safe-
Think Ice!! T
