Ice Yachting - The fun and fear of 100kph

Capable of more than four times the wind speed a DN ice yacht can reach 100kph and in a fleet of 50 boats the closing speeds are both alarming and intoxicating.
Former Finn sailor, David Howlett coached three teams to five Olympic Gold medals, including Ben Ainslie. But after 24 years of working towards other peoples’ success, he is using his spare time to work on his own and has switched to racing a DN. He explains to The World Sailing Show what makes ice yachting tick and why he has become so hooked.

My friend Mats trying out his new SkimBat wingsail, a multipurpose wingsail with good performance, an almost ten year old Finnish design. However, as can be seen no match for a traditional Swedish skatesail- a design from 1905! NE wind 2-4 m/s in the South of Sweden at the northern part of the East Ringlake.

For the Kingston Yacht Club, we skated out to the middle of the lake, and put together a little highlight piece for them to remember the event by. Great job Kingston Yacht Club!

Iceboating Best Day Of The Year | Toledo Ice Yacht Club sailing Maumee Bay

Some choose Key West to sail year-round, and some of us choose Ohio! Fun weekend of ice boating in Toledo, Ohio. LIKE and SUBSCRIBE for the latest iceboating and windsurfing adventures.

Just used a Polaroid Cube for this video. This was recorded January 23-24, 2016.

The exact date of the Toledo Ice Yacht Club founding is unclear. The most widely accepted date for founding occurred in 1919. The purpose for the club is to promote the sport of ice boating as well as provide ice boaters and opportunity to discuss the sport and find where the best ice is. The club primarily sails on Maumee Bay in Toledo, although traveling does occur if there is good ice. There are those that race and those that “cruise.” If there is good ice people will be out. Come down and ask questions.
