Last time we sailed Petit Lac Lambton, Frank went through the ice and had to swim a couple of times to get to the shore. But today, we had a solid 4-5 inches of very smooth ice with the same «ice cow patties» that you described in Jackman. The wind was just perfect and we sailed all day with our full rig, even if at some point, we thought about changing for our DN rig. But we didn’t….!! Ice was hard, and we both realized that we needed some runner sharpening before the next sail.
Boats are out of the ice, but still in Lambton. We plan to sail there again Wednesday after some possible mixed rain and snow tomorrow.
