Renegade Iceboats

International Renegade Ice Yacht Racing Association.
Affordable One Design Ice Yachts.

Rooted in DN & Skeeter Design

Elmer Millenbach’s timeless design introduced much of what modern ice yachting is today.

Organized in 1947

The IRIYRA was formed to promote the Renegade ice yacht.

About the Renegade Iceboat

The Renegade is an excellent boat for those seeking spirited on-design racing. It has been a winner and trend-setter ever since its unveiling in 1947, providing many of the design features found in today’s Skeeters. The Renegade bears 67 square feet of sail on a bendy wing spar, making it a powerful racing yacht in a small package. It is compact and light enough to be car-topped. The local Renegade fleet has seen tremendous growth as many skippers move to perhaps the fastest of the one-designs. For more information on the Renegade class, contact the Renegade Association. Detailed plans are available on this webpage in the links above or  from the IRIYA (for a mere twenty bucks).
