US 5432--Thanks for sharing this news with all our DN-mates.  Deb Whitehorse represents the very best of our sport, so this recognition is a most appropriate honor.  Thanks for making us look much better than we actually are, Deb!

IDNIYRA Executive Secretary Deb Whitehorse was honored, among others, Saturday evening by Lake City Minnesota Mayor Mark Nichols when she was presented with a “Key to the City.”

Lake City has a deep and rich iceboat history and had just hosted the DN Western Region Championships, the ISA’s and the Northwestern’s over three consecutive weekends. The Mayor cited Deb’s longstanding commitment and dedication to the great sport of iceboating as the reason for her selection. Mayor Nichols presented the award during the Northwestern Regatta which was sailed on Lake Pepin.

Welcome to the DN Fleet! When a plank is built that way, the straight edge is normally toward the back of the boat and the angled edges toward the front.  Start out right--sail with others, wear a helmet, have accessible ice picks on you at all times, wear shoes/boots with spikes.  Have fun!

I have a plank for a new boat I bought that has one side straight and one curved when looking down from above. What side goes forward? Im a newbe. I know about the bow in the plank. This is different from that.

I have a plank from a boat I just bought  (newbe) that has a straight side and an arched side when looking down from the top. Does that arch side go forward or aft? Not to be confused with the bow in  the plank. I know about that.

Western Region Championship Called ON for Jan 5-6 @ Lake Pepin
by Deb Whitehorse

DN Sailors:

It’s On!

The Western Regional Championships are confirmed for this weekend, Jan. 5-6 on Lake Pepin in Lake City, Minnesota.


The ice surface is smooth to pebbly, rated a 7+ from two ranked/experienced DN racers who sailed it today. (See attached photos). Ice thickness is reported to be 8”. Weather forecast is calling for above freezing temperatures—sunny and high of 46 degrees on Saturday; cloudy with high of 39 degrees Sunday. Wind forecast for Saturday is 8 mph until 1:00 p.m., then starting to diminish. Sunday winds 8-10 mph throughout the racing day.

Let’s Get Our Money’s Worth

Note that we have a 9-race format scheduled and we will be working hard to be as efficient as possible in order to make that happen. We have the option to start a race as late as 3:00 p.m., but we would prefer to avoid that in consideration of our longer distance travelers. Please be ready to help out the Race Committee if assistance is requested. If rules allow, I would like to move the start time Saturday up ½-hour to 10:00 a.m. Please plan accordingly.

Group rate at AmericInn. Reference “Western Region” to get $79.99/night group rate for double queen with breakfast. Amenities include pool and hot tub. 651-345-5611
AmericInn by Wyndham Lake City
1615 N Lakeshore Drive Lake City, Minnesota 55041-9023

At AmericInn Friday evening and on ice Saturday morning, if necessary. If you will not arrive until Saturday night. Please email Deb Whitehorse secretary.idniyra@gmail.com  to confirm your attendance and to provide your fleet preference—Gold or Silver. (Depending on numbers, there may be one or two fleets, though prizes will be awarded for two fleets).

Roschen Park. Drive on if you so choose, but be aware this is a frozen section of a river.

Many thanks to Mike Miller and Tommy Meyer for scouting this sheet today. And to all others who provided information on other potential venues.

See you there!

Via Western Region Commodore Daniel Hearn:

DN Sailors:

Lake Pepin is being sailed today as a possible venue for the Western Region Championships to take place this weekend, Jan. 5-6.  I will have a full ice report with video and pictures by late afternoon.  At this point, no other good possibilities have been identified, though anything else served up will still be considered.  Send any other reports ASAP.  Recent snow events have taken out, for now, the lakes that were previously frozen.  Many lakes in the southern portion of our region remain open, however, so more possibilities with the next cold weather/calm winds stretch.  I hope to make a final call by end of day today.  Stay tuned, and think ice!
