Snowfer Ice Sailing Report

Safety Precaution

Always check the ice condition before you start sailing. Drill holes in the area where you are going to sail in to test ice thickness. Especially important in the beginning of the season. Make sure the ice thickness is not less than 4 inch and hard (known as black ice). Never go on the ice alone. Wear a life jacket, helmet and have an ice pick with you at all times. Ice/snow sailing & kitesurfing are a wonderful winter sport. Play it safe at all times.

Smooth Ice Up by Willow Beach !

We haven’t seen ice condition like this up in Willow Beach, Ontario as far as I can remember. It’s approximately 7 inch. First time walking on it you feel scared cause you could see the bottom of the lake. Monday, December 27, 2010 was too windy and gusty for sailing so we decided to wait until Tuesday.
