These photos were taken by John Williams the other day on Megunticook. It was a madhouse of sailors, skaters, dogs and walkers, as everyone wanted to be on the fabulous plate of ice. Tips of the helmet all around to all the iceboaters for sailing carefully and not running into any pedestrians. The light and shifty air helped to keep top speeds down.
Next probable sailing looks like next Wednesday. The ice has recovered nicely from Friday’s rain; eight inches thickness reported in Muscongus Bay, Damariscotta Lake, from the Vannah Rd. launch. We’ll scout the rest of the south end during these few upcoming windless days.
