As I wrote about five years ago in SpinSheet, a group of St. Michaels sailors pray for these cold winters, the ones that freeze the creeks over, so that they can break their DNs out of the garage and go iceboating.

This week, I meant to contact the Eastern Shore (Claiborne) iceboaters, but before I did, I heard from Don Wagner, who was out on his own DN on the West River last Sunday with his family.

Here are some great pictures by Don–and a link to a bunch of great ones of the Claiborne crew, too.

Check out the VIDEO AT THE END–you might recognize the sailor’s name… Sail on, Bay iceboaters!!

    Great to see so many sailors enjoying the hard water. In Annapolis there have been pick up ice hockey games the past two mornings as the sun rose.
