Maine Ice Boating History

Sabattus Pond has been on the iceboating radar for many years, but up on the other side of the nearby city of Auburn is Lake Auburn. There’s nothing in the CIBC history about this lake, but according to the article below it was well sailed at one point. Are those big stern steerers still hanging from the rafters of lakeside barns?

Polish your reading glasses, enlarge the text if you can, it’s a good read.

The CIBC Spring Meeting is scheduled for Sunday, May 2, overlooking Damariscotta Lake at Camp Kieve. The plan is to have the meeting and pot luck on the deck, as we did last fall. Considering that most iceboaters, with a few notable exceptions, are old, we can assume that we’ll all be vaccinated by then. It doesn’t mean that we can totally cut loose, but it should make for a more relaxed event. Meeting at 11:00, lunch to follow. Talking and thinking ice till closing.
