Megunticook 1/2/19

Yet another fabulous recovery gave us large plates of dead smooth ice, with few rough spots. We set up marks for scratch racing, had a look at the plate and ran a couple of tight races. By and by the Nite was parked and placing a tree branch in a hole. He had just grazed it, but some else had run right over it earlier and didn’t hear a thing. Note the runner tracks below.

Just goes to show there’s always something somewhere.

So the fleet abandoned the course for a free tour of the lake. Great ice all the way up to Cam’s sauna, and a super smooth plate through Lamb’s Folly which we did numerous times, in both directions.

Megunticook gives us that great joy of working through tight straights, pinching up along shore watching overhead for low hanging branches, then bursting out into a broad bay with the throttle down and another island rounding in the offing. DN 4619 and 3314 have been duking it out since the nineties. Today belonged to 4619!

The stern steerers and a few others didn’t make it all the way up. Here the Mighty Merlin, back on the ice after a long rest, pays homage to Tippy.

Breck’s wife Roseanne Holladay made a small rum of mugs to offer. The one in the middle is from a recent sail in Great Pond, She can print pretty much anything you want on a mug. Thirteen dollars for one, ten for twelve or more, plus shipping unless Breck brings them to the ice for you. Contact her at: info at breckslane dot com. They are a bit larger than the average mug, which is nice.

Nothing on offer for ice around here for a while now. Time to hit the road. Stand by for the Doc Fellows Regatta somewhere this coming weekend,
