FRITZ & The “B”

FRITZ & The “B”

Four Lakes Ice Yacht Club stern-steerers FRITZ A5 and MARY B A4 on Lake Mendota in Madison, Wisconsin c.1955.

A couple more photos from the Mary B Foundation of OT Havey’s vintage photographs.  Madison, Wisonsin’s OT Havey was the original owner of the historic MARY B stern-steerer. Above is an iconic shot for Madisonians – two of the most famous stern-steerers of the 4LIYC near the Edgewater Hotel on Lake Mendota sometime in the 1950s. It appears the crew of the FRITZ is pushing off back to the landing after joining club members who sailed over to the Edgewater for a late lunch and camaraderie. We still do this today!

The crew of the stern-steerer FRITZ pushes off towards home.
