Not bad for one of the warmest autumns in recent history. Not only was Lac Joli very sailable and bullet proof, it’s not going anywhere soon. Some rain Sunday will kill the krust, and cold temps into the week with no snow in the forecast might tempt others to make the trip. We set up marks and match raced to exhaustion. For racers heading to the western challenge this would be a great place to get in some cockpit time and refresh that muscle memory. On a NW breeze the lake is oriented perfectly, marks about 3/4 mile apart.
Thanks to Denis for scouting this ice and for making the video. And merci beaucoup to Madam at Le Morillon for the hot soup and cold beers: Restaurant-bar Morillon et Relais du lac des Abénaquis Book a room there if you are going!
