Cheapskates on Megunticook

Sunday Jan 31; 5 of 6 Cheapies on Megunticook, light air, warm. Fred Wardwell missed photo op, Dean and Robin Parker with their new pair, Bob MacEwan, Ted Silar, and Lloyd Roberts. We sailed gently. Photo courtesy of Robin.

On Monday Lloyd and Bob bashed around in fluky sometimes violent SW wind on mushy ice, temp in 50’s. Lloyd tried slush runners and found no advantage over the usual Cheapskate skinny bed rail runners. Fred showed up and wisely took his Cheapie and Gambit home.
