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:

Congratulations to Rich Crucet and Pete Truesdell for coming in 4th and 5th in the Silver fleet of the North American DN Championships. The event was held in Plattsburgh NY (Lake Champlain). What started out looking for a large sailable ice sheet in the Midwest, the event was slowly moved eastward to Montreal Canada and finally to the NY site. Hear the detail at our upcoming meeting.The 50/50 at our well attended January meeting was won by Ryan Ludwig. He generously donated his winnings back to the club. Thanks Ryan.Icepicks, whistles and Club patches are always available at our monthly meeting.With the very cold winter so far, ice is everywhere. However so is the snow. But the winter is still young and hopefully lots of good sailing ahead.Lonny Wollman has put together a “Meet Up” site. It looks very promising and has lots of potential for the Club. Lonny will make a presentation at our February meeting for our review, input and approval.Hope to see many of you at our February 4th meeting.

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.

GLOBAL WARMING ?  HAH....WATER IS ONLY TEMPORARILY THAWED OUT ICE

THINK ICE !

For Current Weather go to    Or Visit  Weather

                        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!
