Winter Flexes Her Icy Fingers
It is early in the season and we have already begun the cycles of winter. Cold, Snow, Melt and wait. The folks in Maine sprinted up to Plymouth Pond for the last sail before the white dump, some shoveled and plowed and others watched the meager snow melt away in the hard rain. The common thread is we all thought about iceboating, worked on our boats and watched the weather forecasts for some miracle or miracles.
As most of you know, Steve Lamb has once again graciously opened his shop up for our annual off-ice tune-up clinic. If you have not come before it’s a great chance to catch up with fellow sailors, ask a question, learn a new skill, pick up equipment, and of course feast on the food Linda puts together for us. The short of it.
When: Saturday, December 14th, 10:00 am to 3:00pm
Where: Arthur C. Lamb Company 85 Jackson St, Canton, MA 02021

There will be sets of Boride Stones some safety equipment as well as other items for sale. New this year VC Jay Whitehair will be demonstrating ice safety equipment.
See you all there and Think Ice,
P.S. If there is sailable ice do what you need to do, get some tiller time but there will be a crowd at Steves regardless.
P.P.S. Keep an eye on your local ice and spread the news to all! We have only a couple weeks to get some of the 2019 races in and it’s always great to start the season before Christmas.
