Wester Challenge Regatta ON for this weekend, Lake Pulaski, Buffalo, MN

I am pleased to report the Western Challenge Regatta is ON of Lake Pulaski, in Buffalo, MN.

Launch Site is Griffing Park in the SW Corner of the lake.

Here's the deal, the lake is 75 clear snow ice, a bit rumbly in places and 25 % 1" drifts, it's improved dramatically since Sunday. That said, I don't want to be accused of over selling the event, or the ice conditions. It is suitable and we've sailed regattas on worse.

Given the postponement of a week and the emergence of ice in other regions, we're not expecting a record crowd this year, details will be posted tomorrow.
