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.

IRIYA Championships Day One
A great day for Renegade racing today with 15 mph winds and a little bit of snow. Greg Simon's mast "exploded" during the second race but he'll be back on Saturday.
