NEIYA 2022-2023 Season

Shout out to all ice boats and yachts dating back through the ’80s and earlier. This is your year! The NEIYA is focusing on bringing back the sights and sounds of the vintage class. Our goal is to empty the attics, boathouses, and garages around New England of any boats that have been mothballed, neglected, or abandoned. Iceboating is always a group effort so we are calling upon our members to lend a hand to others that may need support in getting the old wood back out on the ice – and we are encouraging YOU to gather up your old parts and get those beautiful old crafts up and running again. This is your year. We are celebrating vintage.

Keep an eye on this NEIYA website for more details as they roll out. The highlight of the season will be a full vintage regatta. A full weekend of fun plus all the days in the following week we can muster. Good food, great company, prizes, rides.

To get the ball rolling we are asking you to take a moment and fill out the following survey. the information will be use to help guide the event parameters. Your input is important to us, and we want to hear from you. Please take a moment and answer the quick survey below.

Think Vintage,

Jay Whitehair
Vice Commodore NEIYA
