Ice boating 2019

It's been a hit-or-miss year on the shores of Lake Ontario. Last few days have been pretty good though- best ice I've seen in 10 years, and more boats playing hooky from work than I've ever seen!


Local videographer captured this:

Somethings wrong will your water, it's meant to be soft.

We could send you some warmth.

Yeah, I know.


Me mate from SYD visited and was surprised to see people watering lawns, washing vehicles that didn't look like they'd come from Coober Pedy, and leaving the water running in the sink.


So I took him to the lake. I said "It's 400km long, 100km wide, all fresh water, and there are four more!" Now he understood.


Might I add: no sharks, no stingrays, no blue rings, no jellies. No poison snakes, no redbacks, no funnel webs.


Aside from that, there's nothing like 120kph under sail!

Re: Ice boating 2019

Fickle temperatures have killed the Lake Ontario iceboating. We've had a number of people and dogs go through the ice, some lived.



Just returned from FL where I saw lots of boats sailing, and many more that haven't moved in years. Sad.
