Montreal Iceboaters starting to get excited.

Hooo, this rig needs someone on a trapeze. Sailing does go on. The Montreal Sailors of the DN iceboat class are already monitoring the local ice. A report assessing the ice on Lac St. Louis was posted on their website Boxing Day. The warm weather has probably nixed it for a short while, but they'll be out there before long! The above sailor is an archive pic from the N.A. site.
