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
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
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.
