Base Ice…. Prognosis

Hello All- Welcome To March!

The last round of snow kind of put the lid on things for awhile but the good news is the cold weather has provided a serious base underneath in a lot of places-

This means once we get through a thaw-freeze cycle or two we will be back in business, possibly into April! Don’t even think about putting the boats away yet….

The gang in Kingston is optimistic for getting the Canadian Champs in this season, there are still NEIYA regattas to be done, maybe there is a Hard Way and / or Frolic in the cards on Winni, the guys in upstate NY are still on the hunt for sail-able conditions, Moosehead is probably a whole other story…. So plenty of racing and cruising to be done!

Stay tuned to this site for details and if you know of sail-able, safe ice anywhere let us hear about it on the NEIYA Ice-Reporting network!

Think ICE! T


Upcoming Events / Races

Hello All-

The DN Gold Cup and North American Champs are in the books for 2019- Great races, lots of stories and will recap them all when I clear the pile of work off my desk!

In the meantime it’s pretty cold out- I’m hearing vague rumors about a Canadian Championship to be held in Kingston, ON this weekend- nothing definite yet but stay tuned…. If not maybe we can get an NEIYA event together-

Closer to home there must be some lakes in NE that are sail-able- If you have ice get on the Ice Report system and let us know about it!

Spring will be here before you know it so make it a point to rack up as many hard-water days as possible-

Think ICE!!
