Sunapee Sailing Thursday, Jan 21st

Lake Sunapee main body to the north

As mentioned yesterday we are coming into prime time. Our Vice Commodore Jay Whitehair was scouting Lake Sunapee in NH earlier today. Jay launched from State beach park and scouted the south and north ends. CAUTION there are some large holes in the south end that are skimmed over. Be very wary of the pressure ridges between the north and south sections. These are active areas and MUST be crossed with caution.

Jay will be back sailing on Sunapee tomorrow. Launch info below.,+86+Beach+Access+Rd,+Newbury,+NH+03255/@43.3428806,-72.1317978,12z

Monomonoc in Rindge NH and Wentworth are still in play. A wide range of venues can be had in Maine check out for details. And maybe even more as we move into the weekend.

Think Ice, Sail Fast, and Be Safe

John Stanton
NEIYA, Commodore

While we are all anxious to get out and sail, especially as our season begins, While Covid-19 is still amongst us, we MUST all practice Enhanced Personal Responsibility. Basically, take the personal responsibility that we iceboaters already practice and turn it up a few notches.

Before you go:

  • Be aware of and adhere to all local, state, or federal regulations.
  • If you have any symptoms get tested and be negative before you go. If in doubt, stay at home!.
  • Practice Social Distancing – Easy gauge, the length of a DN plank is eight(8) feet.
  • Keep congregating and socializing in the pits and parking areas to a minimum.
  • Wear your mask or face covering while setting up, transporting gear to and from your car or trailer, and while setting up.
  • The NEIYA will NOT be holding any official after ice activities so plan accordingly.
  • Let’s all be safe and keep the safety of others in mind in everything we do.

    FYI, we stayed out sailing with Until dark. A bunch more snow squalls came through, but the snow was blowing away, so it’s apt to be fine. State Beach parking is pretty great. Will Sent from my iPad
