Crane Lake skimmed over with ice last night. The lake is located next to the south frontage road of highway 394 and can be seen from the freeway between Ridgedale and County Road #73.

Early ice is a sure sign that the Great Western Challenge (Dec 6-8, 2013: where “Friday is always the Best Day!”) is just around the corner. Location TBD.

Sailors of all abilities, particularly newcomers to the class, are encouraged to attend.
