Published in error . . . but oh well.   These photos were taken ten years ago . . . almost, early February 2010.

I took them my first time ever to see ice boating.  It was cold but glorious.  Yes, those are the Catskills on the other side of the Amtrak rails. If you travel the river, you recognize the contours of the peaks.

 

Conditions for ice boating do not happen every year.  In fact, most years you cannot go ice boating because it’s too warm, ice has snow on it, ice is too rough . . .

As a result, members of the HRIYC has some quite old boats that have not been used much.  I was told a 100-year-old boat might have been used only 10 seasons.

 

Wind bellies the sails and the boats race!

All photos, WVD.
