On the Ice again

Yeah, life is not bad when the Fjord at my home starts freezing in and the first sailable ice is developing. Such had been the thing yesterday and despite a work schedule for most of us, we met on the ice to sailsome practice races. It was good and I felt at home immediatley with my boat, with the surroundings and with myself. Maybe that had been the reason that I won all of the races despite the first two, but all without changing a knob. We had some good chat after finishing the day and thinking about racing again, maybe more officially on Saturday, weather permitting. See you on the Ice, G-99 Have not blogged for a long time after I had to swallow my frustrations of not being able to sail at Lake Garda. Did only do some practice at the wonderful venue and the warm water but at the first day, my back gave in. I was not able to carry my boat to the ramp and therefore went straight home to see the doctor. Couldn´t stay and look at 120 Moths having fun and fighting it out. Not that I would have been able to even touch a place better than 80th, but the great cameraderie and spirit in the Moth class is something special and it will pull me back into the next big event. See you on the water, GER-3835

Welcome back. I was wondering why you stopped blogging. Hope your back is OK now.

Brrrr... Iceboating looks like fun, but it also looks like swapping the beer with Vin Chaud. Best wishes for the new year...
