Three Kings of Iceboating
The Strictly Sail Chicago show is this weekend at Navy Pier (Jan. 29-Feb. 1, 2009), which is the Midwest’s only and the nation’s largest indoor all-sail boat show. Despite the show occurring in the middle of winter, and despite the show occurring in an area where winter really means winter, ice boating is not one of the displays typically found at Strictly Sail Chicago, However, this year, it may be among the largest display at the show.
Beyond profiling a few of the sweet machines that take to the hard water, on Saturday at 10:00am, there will be a presentation by the unofficial three kings of iceboating: Buddy Melges, Bill Matson, and Peter Harken. Their discussion will cover:
• Buddy Melges: How to make an iceboat go fast like a rock star.
• Bill Mattison: How to build an iceboat like a rock star.
• Peter Harken: How to party like a rock star.
