Sunday would be filming the racing and iceboats sailing around as well as few sound bites. Monday would be sailing with the correspondent which I will arrange on the side. If you are around and can sail on Monday, please feel free to come out.

Saturday we should get out on the ice as well. Let's do some races. I am volunteering my time to do whatever is necessary to ensure that the shoot tells are really great story.

A Beautiful Day to Sail

ABC National News and GMA to film on Lake Minnetonka

Greetings fellow Iceboaters,

A few weeks ago I got a call from ABC News regarding Iceboating on Minnetonka, and spot to be featured on Good Morning America's Weekend Edition. The details are still coming together and will be finalized mid-week. I have been organizing this with a few iceboaters to make sure we have some key pieces covered.

Any local ice for this weekend ??

Does anybody have any local ice reports? Tonka? WBL? Waconia? Any prospects for this weekend??

Well that was fun

Well, I had a great regatta!

Congratulations to Ron Sherry for his win, getting five firsts and throwing out a 4th.. great job, he was really fast!

That was the best I have ever done at our season opener, a fifth overall. Almost all top ten finishes (one eleventh). I even picked up a third on the first race. That felt pretty cool.

The Minnesota crew also did a great job with Mark C (the Doctor) winning the tie on Sunday over a very fast Steve O from team PISS. Tom Verburgt and Mike Miller had a good battle going for the Silver fleet with Tom besting Mike.

The Season of Joy Starts Here! ™

Fifty DN's set up on the Legendary Lake Christina's most alluring ice, 20n more in the parking lot, more on the road. A perfect sheet of ice more than 5" thick, a warm breeze at 10-15... sailors from three continents, six or so countries, ready to celebrate the Season of Joy, IceBoating!

Everything is shaping up for Epicity starting about sunrise today.

The Great Western Challenge Regatta™ 2011, Milepost 8, Lake Christina, Ashby, Minnesota. First race 10:00 Two Fleets Planned. 10-15 rookies waiting in the wings for that first sail...

The Great Western Challenge, another tack...

Short course sailing will be entering it's exciting 6th season this winter, after 5 seasons of development here in Minnesota, and The IceMaker's working on another season, like the ice it's crystallizing now.

The project has spawned other short course experiments in Canada and Sweden, it's not going away, it's growing, evolving, changing and getting better across a broad audience. While our track racing was shortened last winter, track development continued, we saw 50 mph laps on the oval with 4 boats on the track at one time.
