Home Of The Lake Ronkonkoma Ice Boat And Yacht Club

Everyone is invited to our annual Icing of the Lake. It will be held at the launching ramp on Lake Ronkonkoma on Sunday 12/21 at 3pm. This is timed with the winter solstICE. I'll bring some ice cubes but perhaps you prefer to bring your own specialty frozen cubes in honor of the ICE GOD. This year we will also be holding a Rich Crucet Remembrance who I'm sure will be joining us in spirit.
Hope you can join me.

It is With Great Sadness That Our Club Has To Report That Rich Crucet Has Passed Away.

Rich taught us all how to sail ,race, build, be safe and most of all enjoy our ice-boating friends. He shared his home, his shop, his camper and his experience was passed on to all. We must follow his tracks and use and share the knowledge 
he instilled in each and every one of us.  

Message from the Commodore

Welcome all to another ice boating season. Hopefully it will be another ice producing winter as the Farmers  Almanac is predicting. There were 12 ice boats on display at the Greenport Maritime Festival this past September. A good time was had by all. It is with great pleasure to announce that Jan Crucet has been approved to be an Honorary member of our club. Thanks Jan for everything you have done for us over the years. In the footsteps of our past Commodore, Rich Crucet, our annual Swap Meet is scheduled for December 13th from 1 to 4 pm. The club will supply food and drinks. Soup will be made by Rosemary, our new Recording Secretary. Steve Duhamel is scheduled to attend. If you have a special request, contact him at "steve@northwindiceboats.com" or 781-826-8004. Cathy is working on a memorial trophy in honor of Rich Crucet. The club will be raising money to pay for her expenses. The Rich Crucet DN 500 stickers given to us by Chad Atkins of the NE club will be sold for $5 each to start the fund raising. I will have them available at the Swap Meet. I will also be collecting contributions that people would want to make toward the trophy fund. Please be as generous as possible. Club dues remain at $15. If paying at the Swap Meet, please bring a check made out to LRIBYC in lieu of cash. This will make John Ziermann's, our new Treasurer, job a lot easier. In addition to your dues, please add any additional amount that you wish to contribute toward the Crucet memorial trophy fund.
Hope to see you at the Swap Meet.

Lake Ronkonkoma Ice Boat and Yacht Club

Founded 1923

The Lake Ronkonkoma Ice Boat and Yacht Club was founded in 1923 on the premise of furthering the interest in the sport of ice boating.  Today we still stand by that noble cause with the vision of enjoying the sport to its fullest and inspire others regionally, nationally and internationally to partake in the fun and adventure that sailing on ice can bring.

                        NEVER go out on the ice alone!      NEVER go out on the ice without ice picks!                     ALWAYS wear creepers!           ASK sailors where the hazards are!   
        THERE is always thin ice somewhere!
