There will be a major convergence of iceboaters from all over the east this weekend at Lake Winnipesaukee. Rumor has it that a couple of A class stern steerers are coming. As we know, there are only two left in the East: Rocket from New Jersey and Jack Frost from the Hudson River.
The DN New England Championships will be contested over Saturday and Sunday. Skippers meeting at 10:00am, first start at 10:30. Launch at Ellacoya State Park. Be sure to leave lots of space at the ramp for others, especially the grouchy ice fishermen.
VERY slim chance there will be the Hardway on Sunday, but this is a sport of miracles.
Any way you slice it we are having a weekend long iceboaters party. Cheap rooms at http://www.firesideinngilford.com. Cocktails and dinner to follow racing on Saturday!
