Friday Sabattus Sailing

Sabattus’ lovely ice is calling us back for Friday, even less wind forecast for Thursday than we had Wednesday, Friday forecast 6 mph at Lewiston airport. See below for pix from Thursday. Access is at town park on Lake St. Go through town and keep turning toward shore of SW edge of lake and turn right on Lake St. Weather Saturday looks sketchy with less wind and some chance of rain. Park said to get busy with ice fishermen on weekends.

We had about a dozen boats Wednesday, maybe with a bit more wind the scratch racing can be upwind/down wind as usual, it doesn’t take much on that smoooth ice.
