Nova Scotia Sailors at Ice Boating Worlds

Ice Boats

Feb 6, 2017

Five members of the Nova Ice Yacht Club (NIYC) traveled to the DN World and North American Championships in Wisconsin. It was something of a mystery tour as +8C temperatures and rain made ice hard to find. The Worlds started a day late in Madison before wet snow shut them down. After a day of searching for new ice the race committee and competitors moved 350 km to Green Bay. Warren Nethercote had the best NIYC result in the Worlds (111 Competitors) finishing 17th in the Silver Fleet. Bob Crinian led the club members in the North Americans (91 competitors) with a 7th place finish in the Silver Fleet.
