ice boating

For the first time in about five years, temperatures were low enough to freeze Hallocks Bay, & local ice-boat enthusiasts brought out their craft. Some are the latest lightweight models; others, like the large wooden gaff-rigged boat (shown in the second photo), are over a century old.

They are amazing, & go quite fast, depending on the craft (& the wind, of course).
