WISSA 2012: snow sailing & snow kiting

the 2012 World Ice and Snow Sailing Championships is going on this week all the way up in St. Ignace, Michigan.  the event includes 3 types of sailing or classes: snow sailing (or sled class, where a windsurfing rig is used with some type of sled and the rider is standing), wing sailing (any wing held directly by hand), and snow kiting (a wing connected by line).  you can learn more about the activities at website/blog for the World Ice and Snow Sailing Association (WISSA), or on the event’s Facebook page.

St. Ignace is located right across the Mackinac Bridge, the 1st stop in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula.  it is situated right on Lake Huron, with views over to Mackinac Island.  per the WISSA 2012 website, this will be the 1st time in 17 years that the international event will be hosted in the USA.

HT: the Detroit Free Press had an article about the event a few weeks ago.
