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.

Learning to Share !

Lake Simcoe by Glenwoods Ave in Keswick is a popular spot for Snow Sailing, Kiting, Snow Mobiles and even Ice Fishing. Each one has a responsibility to learn how to share this wonderful recreational spot for everyone to enjoy. Kiters needs to be in one area so their lines are not ran over by irresponsible snow mobilers and the same goes for the snow mobilers they needs to respect the kiters.
