It's a balmy five degrees here this morning at iceboat.org, a higher temperature than was forecasted. But the wind forecast is right on so far there doesn't seem to be any wind right now.

The banquet was well attended by both DNs and Renegade sailors and it was good to catch up with our ice boating friends from Minnesota, Illinois, and Michigan.

IRIYA Championships Day Two

Racing began at 2 PM today and three races were sailed. In the first race there was an incident between regatta leader Mike Derusha and Don Anderson. Mike's springboard was damaged and he was forced to drop out of the race. Both skippers were okay and Don Anderson went on to win the first race of the day. (As I left the lake, both skippers were shaking hands with each other.)
Equipment failures plagued Doug Kolner and Andy McCormick today.
Tim McCormick won the other two races. Drifting increased today but there was more black ice showing than on Friday. Winds were out of the NNW 12-15 mph.

Saw a big fleet of DNs racing on the western end of the lake. The Renegade skippers are joining the DNs tonight at their banquet.

The Original Renegade II Turns Up In Barn!


Via Renegade Association Secretary Ron Rosten: "These photos were sent to me from Gord Devries of Trenton Ontario, who recently picked up an old iceboat just sitting in someone’s barn. The old boat that Gord picked up turned out to be Renegade II built by Elmer Millenbach in 1941. The previous owner used it to make a plug for fiberglass hulls. Gord is currently restoring the boat and will be sailing one of those fiberglass Renegades until the wooden boat is complete. Can you see where Elmer signed and dated the mast reinforcing between bulkheads number 7 and 8? Elmer won the ISA with this boat in 1948, and keep in mind he was competing against both the Skeeters and Renegades.
