Blown Out….

So it goes…. Bitter cold yesterday, excessively high winds today for the DN EASTERNS….

Big bummer as we had a good group of enthusiastic sailors on hand. Alas it was not to be.

On to The Big Show- Scouting a site is key- If you see a big plate of ice call it in!

    Sand Bar State Park was the site of my first Worlds/NAs (1989). I still use that shaving kit bag! I had only been iceboating for a few weeks. It was an awesome experience. I would love to return there. This time, however, I will know better than to purposely do three runner skids around the leeward mark and to think it is “cool” to launch the boat completely airborne over frozen lumps. ps. I now have the technology to sharpen the runners after the sand has its way with them. Seriously, I am more than happy to come there. 11 hour drive from Detroit.

    You have a very large Eastern Region with lots of ice in many states. Burlington is not the favored choice by many in the midwest. You won’t get any from the far west. We had the North Americans on Lake Canadaguia, N.Y. one year. Lake Wallenpaupac in PA. has great ice at times. Great attendance. Call arouind. Bill
