Interesting post from Bill Bucholz- “The CIBC has been invited to display at the Maine Boats and Harbors Show in Rockland this weekend. Anyone interested in helping to man the booth and set up a few iceboats, please call me 207-975-6980.”
Give him a shout or at least go check it out!
Hey Folks- While we are all slumming it here in NE the Moth Dinghy class is holding it’s World Champs in the rather picturesque venue of Lake Garda in Italy.
NEIYA DN-er Matt Knowles is there, toughing it out in the silver fleet but surely having a blast racing in these light, fast, foiling craft.
Also competing is German DN-er Thomas Huber and probably several others. All of whom no doubt are wishing it was February!

Good luck Matt- can’t wait to hear about this one over the winter- Think Ice!
We will be implementing new subdivisions in the masters groups at our regattas this winter. Please review and specify a group when signing up for the next event.
This was Chad Atkins van loaded up for July 4th weekend…. Note the combination of paddle boards and a DN on the roof.
Maybe he heard about some vestige of ice somewhere and was hedging his bets?
Either way it’s time to start thinking about the coming season…..
Nicklas Muller-Hartburg put this video up of his trip to Lake Baikal last spring- If you are looking for something to take your mind of the summer heat and get you thinking about the upcoming winter sailing season take a look!
Hey Folks- Couldn’t resist sharing this vid of the big J-Class yachts racing in Bermuda. Pretty impressive! Big, heavy, expensive and of course still not as quick as a rusty old Lockley Skimmer but hey, who are we to judge? https://player.vimeo.com/video/224434991
Anyway it’s worth a look- and make a note that these boats will be in Newport RI in August 21-26 for their World Championships. Worth a visit and a walk down the dock if you are in the neighborhood! http://www.jclassyachts.com/events/j-class-world-championship-1
