Folks have been sailing elsewhere, actually. There has been lots of good ice in Maine, and Wisconsin.
There was some ice on Tivoli Bay last weekend, but the surface left a lot to be desired and it wasn't sufficient thickness. Edges were flooded with water ( Tide was quite high then) and access was impossible without getting wet. With fairly warm temperatures throughout this past week (last week of January) this ice won't build thickness at all. we'll need a snow, some warming and a good freeze to level out this surface. We still have February... (this upcoming week is not encouraging though...., still I'm optimistic).
Come out to Olana on Feb. 6. There'll be a showing of the short "Against the Wind," filmed on the river in 2014. And I'll show a few slides and set up Cyclone. More details here.
