Perfect Weekend of Sailing ,Almost

After a great sail on Saturday and part of Sunday the fun came to a crashing halt when I dropped my port runner into a pressure crack.30 miles of beautifull Ice and I got greedy and tried to go a bit further then I had scouted.Good news is there seems to be min. damage as the hull plates basically pulled off.Bad news is I was 5 miles from the launch site.Made for a long lonely "walk of shame".

Ten Reasons to Sail Short Courses on Clear Big Ice.

1. There's no Wall to run into.

2. Bigger courses and fleets are possible.

3. GPS Tracks from Clear Ice Short Course Races tell organizers what they should really be plowing for courses, when the time comes.

4. It's cheap easy and fast, just like laying down a starting line.

5. It's better on small ponds, more places to sail = more times to sailing.

6. You'll feel better letting somebody sail your boat there.

7. It's easy for rookies to sail, and as they have nothing to run into, much safer for them and others.
