Black Ice Fanatic Seeking Black Top…


Hello All-

Joachim Roesler is looking for some info about local landsailing-  read on, this might work out well for someone-  take a look at the attached photo!  If you have any info for him, give him a shout-  his contact info is at the bottom- Think Ice!

He writes:   I was wondering if you could put the word out for some help with a land sailing question.

Recently I have scouted and found a very nice old airfield near Boston, SouthField in Rockland, MA. The main runway would be very suitable for some land sailing (see attached pic of my hybrid ride).

However, I have not yet been able to identify who controls that old airfield, or whom I would have to ask for permission.

Do you think anyone in our ice sailing audience would know or could help with that? I’m offering free rides, if it works out.

    Do you have your heart set on a runway in MA? Floyd Bennet Field in Brooklyn is a great close by venue. Perhaps some of the LI guys can share some details. I have a land sailor I would love to get out on one of these days before the ice comes.,-73.9114306,15405m/data=!3m1!1e3!4m5!3m4!1s0x0:0x31e3536e533a6d2a!8m2!3d40.5910174!4d-73.8906091
