And They’re Off…

About 10% of our membership is on the road to the DN North Americans. The call was made last night and the destination is Madison Wisconsin. Good luck guys! Drive safely and bring home some silver. More on this from our man on the scene Commodore “T” who will check in from the road, hotel shoreline and on the ice or where ever he has cell service. As we all know, especially this season, it’s hard to find decent conditions to sail and an even greater task when a major regatta is involved.

Eric Anderson outlined and previously published what was involved with pulling off the 2014 DN North American’s. Here is a link to the archived article “Many Miles to the 2014 DN North Americans“. Some time after the dust from the trophies changing hands settled we will publish a piece on the planning/scouting phase of the 2016 NA’s from the Eastern perspective. Stay tuned.

Closer to home let’s not forget that we are not done yet. Bill Buchholz and the CIBC crowd have been sailing this week. Reports are in from Sunapee in NH as well as Mallet’s Bay in VT. Waiting on some VT details but all reports are of a spectacular plate.  Sunapee locals Ron and Kate have put out the welcome mat, conditions are looking a little challenging but we are used to that. I don’t have to say it but our season is short and little wet sailing is better than none at all.

If your thinking of sailing, on the fence, looking at the weather reports or already packed let’s hear from you. Either comment hear or reply to the Ice Reports email. Yes all you have to do is hit reply.

    New ice sailor keen for some sailing and tuning, up for either VT or NH, wherever has the best ice or critical mass.
