hard water sailing

Michigan, as well as most of the Midwest, is in the midst of the polar vortex – with horrific cold temperatures and wind chills approaching -40 degrees F (and C, coincidentally…).  seems appropriate to share a sweet drone video of the DN iceboat North American Championship racing that was held recently on Lake Charlevoix in northwest Michigan.

    Looks like fun, and I am impressed by how close they can sail into the wind. But no. I prefer my water in liquid form!

    Don’t know what looks more fun- sailing the ice boats, or flying the drone.

    Great video! Nice clear ice. We never get ice like that down here in southwest Michigan. When it gets cold enough, we get too much lake effect snow.
    Fun!
