Wisconsin has ice all over the place!
Madison Wi is the primary location. Could be Kegonsa or Monona. They have smoothed over some today and going to rain a bit more tonight. Above freezing temps for another 24 hours, followed by cold and wind. Ice will thicken on both lakes. No snow in the forecast with moderating temps by the weekend should lead to great ice.

We also have a good report of huge grade 7 ice on Winnebago at Fond du Lac. Sailed yesterday and today by Bob Cummins. They are a little closer to possible snow and mixed overnight, but could be plan B. Pete Johns is checking Senachwine again as another option.
Get your gear ready along with a copy of your insurance. Stay tuned for final call by Wednesday evening.
Should you have better ice to report, my cell is 612-868-2949.

The weekends regatta will be held on Lake Monona in Madison, Wi. Launch site will be at the Olin Park 1156 Olin-Turville Ct., Madison Wi. Same place as last years NA's, on the SW corner of the lake.
Dan Hearn and Deb have been working with the City Parks Dept for a bulk parking pass to avoid parking costs to the racer. More info by Thursday or Friday.
The ramp is suitable for trailers to back right on 12 inches of ice. Be careful of the small stream to the left side.
A small heave is located about 100 yards from the launch so be careful in crossing. We expect to mark the best crossing area with orange cones on Friday. No other hazards noted.
The ice is very nice black hard ice with zero snow cover, rated a 7-8 by a ranked sailor today.
