Unfortunately, the Wisconsin Stern Steering Association regatta has been postponed to February 4 and 5. The next update will be Sunday, January 29. Check back here at that time. The Northwest Ice Yacht Association regatta takes precedence. Northern lakes have crusty snow at least an inch deep, southern lakes need more thickness. Pewaukee is clear and flat.
The Northwestern Ice Yachting Association Regatta is postponed to February 3rd-5th 2023. We have cold weather arriving to make enough thickness for the Stern Steerers.
4LIYC racing is called ON for the Renegade and Nite classes for Saturday, January 21, 2023 on Lake Kegonsa. Use the Amundson landing and roll trailers on the ice. Do not drive on the ice! There will be two rotations starting at 10 AM, followed by a lunch break at Springer’s, and then two more rotations.
There will be no club racing for Sunday, January 22, 2023 in deference to the 2023 DN World Championship. It’s your chance to see what’s going to be some incredible action from the top DN sailors in the world.
As you may have heard, the DN World Championships are landing here in Madison. You are cordially invited to join us for the Opening Ceremony on Saturday. The event begins at 8 PM and will take place at my office at 1352 E. Wilson St. There will be an open bar and a charcuterie board worthy of a world championship. Please plan on joining in the fun.
