I would like to say it will be perfect conditions here but the forcast (50428) is rain Thurs, Sat and freezing rain Sun. The temps at night are at least all below freezing so the rain should harden at nite with some possibilities early in the AM. Did you see the pictures a couple of days ago from Calgary,Canada? One was sailing through 2" of water on 12" of ice. We have 10" here as per the hut men.

Sailed the lake ice/water tonight. Lots of large patches of 1/2 to 1 1/2 inches of standing water. A bubble would be nice over the cockpit and wipers. All the rough spots are gone, smooth ice under the water. Will need to watch the drain holes! were about fist size at 5:30 and draining surface water. Over night low of 31 not good , Sat Low of 15 should help out
