Ice Boats on Mecox Bay

Thursday January 18th I made a last minute check of the ice on Mecox Bay and found the ice boaters out. Most were  getting the last day of ice racing in before the weather warmed up. The racers were excited because the ice was smooth and fast. Trying as many runs as they could before the days light vanished.

Hard Sailing on Mecox Bay

I was out on Mecox Bay last week during the cold snap and came across the ice boat sailors. After getting a few still photos I took some video. It wasn’t my plan to make a video. This is my first attempt at video and is very amateurish. The video can be watched at the link below. I hope you enjoy the video. Still photos will be in tomorrows post.

Hard Sailing on Mecox Bay

Last week I stopped in on Mecox Bay and the Hard Sailors were out on the ice. I didn't intend to take any video so the quality is a little rough. I hope you enjoy the video.
