These reports trend non political, but as ice sailors we have Russian friends. We’ve sailed together, drank together, and solved the problems of the world together. Well, maybe not all of them. But there are many good Russian people who’s lives are being ripped apart both within Russia and without.
So take a minute to watch this wonderfully joyous iceboating video. It’s a precious reminder that we are all human, and those who sail on ice are connected by a special bond that transcends borders.
Let’s hope we can someday again meet our Russian ice sailing buddies on the ice.
