Weather Conditions are Ideal for Ice Sailing

Posted: Updated:

The temperatures haven't risen much yet this spring, and that's allowing an extended ice sailing season on some lakes.

Ice boats are skimming across the ice on Lake Charlevoix.

There have been as many as 70 spotted on the lake at one time, and with these conditions, it's perfect for getting out on the ice.

Many took advantage of the sun, wind, and clear ice today.

Some of the ice boats were topping speeds of more than 60 miles per hour on Lake Charlevoix today.
