Message from the Commodore

Even with the cold temperatures we've had so far this year, only Swan Pond has given us local sailable ice. First ice boating of the season on Long Island was January 10th.The Pond has allowed for many good sailing days so far. For the first time ever, a stern steerer (Joe Gangeleri's) and a skeeter (Mike Seele's old boat) sailed the pond. Two days of point races were run. The new Swan Pond Regatta was sailed on 1/15/15 and won by Doug Adams. Thanks to many of our members that are checking the various lakes and bays for sailable ice. Please keep the reports coming. The season is still young, so keep your runners sharpened for a moments notice of good ice. As I write this, our club members Cathy Firmbach, Scott Valentine and Peter Truesdell are up in Kingston, Ontario Canada participating in the DN Worlds and North American Championships. We wish them good ice, wind and an enjoyable and safe regatta. We expect to hear a detailed rundown of the regatta at our February 3rd meeting. Don't miss it. Hope to see you there.

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.

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.
