Message from the Commodore:
Another season has come to a close. However, unless you made a commitment to travel, the local season never materialized. As an old Brooklyn Dodger fan used to say "Just wait till next year!". I'm happy to report that at our March meeting, all present officers volunteered and were reelected for another two year term. I truly appreciate all the hard work that they do during the year. The revised By-laws as approved at our February meeting are now posted on our Web site. Changes/additions were made for sections 6.4, 9.2 and 12.1. The Awards Dinner is scheduled for Sunday April 17th at the Harbor Crab in Patchogue from 4 to 7pm. Please let John Ziermann know if you are planning to attend. The restaurant will be needing a head count. Pay at the door with exact change or by check made out to LRIBYC ($40). Even with the limited local ice, trophies will be awarded. Also at the dinner, a DN North American Championship regatta presentation will be made as well as some mystery awards handed out. As a final tribute to the 2016 season, hear the Fat LADY sing on the Chickawaukie Ice Boat web site. Title "Highlights of the CIBC 2016 Season". Great video by a great club. Hope to see many of you at our Awards Dinner.

Thanks. Ralph

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.

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!
