Pete DeWolfe returned to Rosemary Lake and successfully defended his Icebreaker championship. Pete won it last year with his Soling, and this year with his DF95. Twelve skippers competed in very chilly and at times swirling windy conditions. The bright sunshine made for a fun day and the racing was competitive throughout. So our 2021 season is underway!!
Weather on Sunday 3/28 forces the postponement of the Icebreaker until Saturday 4/3.
Vac-U-Soling kit production is delayed. Our hope now is to finish the build by sometime in April.
Because of curiosity, Paul and Cliff plan to build one of the new Solings. Vac-U-Boat (same company that produces the club’s tugboats) was chosen by the Soling 1M class to replace Victor Models as the source for boat kits. See:http://www.vac-u-boat.com/Vac-U-Soling.htm
Production of these kits has just begun, and we expect to receive a build kit by the end of February. Stay tuned here, as we go through the entire build process. With some good luck, this new Soling may race in our club’s Ice Breaker in March. Will it be competitive against the old Soling?
