Remote Control Ice Yacht - test in 30 knots of wind

This was only the second time trying to sail my radio control ice yacht. The first time there was zero wind, this day it was blowing 25-30 knots with snow drifts blowing across the lake. Despite the wind I tried sailing anyway, this was the result.

The perfect ice - Ice boats on Lake Geneva

If you would like to see more of this kind of video become a fan on or visit

Before today I thought a hike was what a center did when the quarterback yelled the word, or a long walk in the wilderness. But I experienced a HIKE today on an ice boat called Zephyr III with Bob Mereness at the helm. In this case a hike is when the boat edges up on two of the three runners. Ice boats can get up to 100 mph although today I think we were only going about 50, which was plenty fast for this newby!

So I started by walking out on transparent ice, so see-through that I felt like I was walking on water. You could see fish swimming underneath. I was questioning my own sanity for just a second but then remembered I am committed to getting the shot no matter what so I charged on about a 1/4 mile into Lake Geneva with my Canon 5D Mark II with 1080p HD video built in. It turned out that a monopod and my 24-105 lens was the perfect combination for the video project.

I hope you enjoy this video as much as I enjoyed making it.
