The venerable Commodore’s Cup itself has inscribed on it “Ice Will Suffice”. That sets the tone for this weekend’s sailing. We have a small pond in Ste. Aurelie called Lac Joli with 5″ of ice and a splendid surface. Lac Abenakis, about a mile away, is a mess of slush and standing water about 3″ thick.
We plan to scratch race on Joli Saturday and maybe move to Abenakis Sunday if the surface heals, only because it’s a bit bigger, or less small if you prefer.
Cross the border on US 201 near Jackman. Ste Aurelie is about an hour from Jackman. Drive through Ste. Aurelie, Lac Joli is on the left just through town. Jory, Denis and I will be there around ten. Dave Fortier and Lee Spiller Have said they might come. Anybody else?
Still no ice in sight locally.
