We walked about 200 yards out from the launch at Ellacoya- ice at least 14” thick with some thin spots right at the launch.
Drain holes were seen around the areas where people were ice fishing, I think they were fishing holes that turned to drain holes. Some of them looked big enough to cause an issue…. Hoping that they will lock up with cold temps and clear skies tonight.
Beyond that the surface isn’t bad- no snow and mostly smooth grey ice. We have certainly sailed on much worse! Call it a 6-7 out of ten.
We will sail, scout and hopefully scratch race out of Ellacoya State park tomorrow AM.
