Looking for a Classic Long Island Iceboating Book pick up a copy of Warren Darress’s book. You can email Warren Darress Jr. and purchase a copy before they are all sold. It’s a classic.
As I write this on January 18th Mother Nature so far has not cooperated in giving us any local sailable ice. But the winter is still young. I encourage everyone to keep their boats and all associate equipment on the ready for when the Ice Alert horn blows it's favorable report. I can not stress enough the importance of making sure when the ice comes that it's checked properly and thus safe for sailing. The World's and NA's are scheduled to be run next week. Four of our club members have already signed up. We wish Scott Valentine, Pete Truesdell, Chris Miller and Hank Kaiser a safe, successful and enjoyable event. On the traveling side: Mike Acebo has made the trip up to Maine for some great sailing at Damariscotta Lake. Also congratulations to Chris Miller for coming in 3rd in the New England championships which were held in the southern end of Lake Champlain. He and Hank Kaiser also made the trip all the way out to Wisconsin for the Western Regional Regatta. Looks like traveling is in order. At out February 7th club meeting we expect to get a debrief from these traveling representatives. Come and hear about their adventures. Thanks
