Warm Air, Cold Ice...
This week we will see the Maumee Bay turn from white to dark as the snow cover melts away. Also this could have a leveling effect on the ice akin to a giant "Zamboni" cruising through.
Of course we all have our eyes peeled on the forecasts for Friday and Saturday snow showers. These could be bad for iceboating.
Since we never can tell what the weather REALLY is going to do, we will remind all that the Greiner Open which was postponed last weekend is on the schedule for this coming weekend. Hopefully the snow will miss us, or not affect the sailability of the ice too much.

Although Greiner Open Regatta is postponed this weekend, a few of us managed to sail today. Snow is very dry and sticky about 20% clear, snow coverage varies from 1/4-3/4” depth. Short snow-slipper runners were best in the light winds.
Saturday winds look light, Sunday has good winds and the snow will likely be softening up.
2PM Sunday will be a group photo shot so bring your boats to Lashaway’s.

Toledo Ice Yacht Club shared Miller Ferry to Put-in-Bay and Middle Bass Island's post. ... See MoreSee Less

Islanders leave their Christmas trees at South Bass Island State Park. A few experienced ice lovers venture out to check the ice & use the trees to mark a path. Remember: There is no such thing as safe ice, ventures should be done ONLY with a local experienced guide.

Greiner Open POSTPONED
Due to extreme cold on Saturday, extreme gusty conditions on Sunday.
TIYC WILL SET MARKS
And allow scrub or club races (if conditions allow).
These challenging conditions are what racers need experience in as extreme cold or sticky snow happens.

The ice continues to grow on Maumee Bay. The snow is making light air sailing difficult or impossible. It is also making sailing in gusty conditions hazardous.
It is not recommended that sailors unfamiliar with the Maumee Bay or without a local base or headquarters try to sail here this weekend.

Approximately .8 NM course possible in area scouted this morning. about 1/2" powder snow on surface has little effect on speed. Plenty of breeze, but still manageable so far today.
The ice is NOT SAFE for motorized vehicles of anykind. The ice right along shore of Point Place has a smooth surface and will be fantastic for ice skating, or iceboating (if wind is light). All sailors are advised to use extreme caution sailing near shore. South of 125 St, the seam line will have mud, sand, wood, even a rock or two in it. So stay outside or inside that seam once you go south of there. Some of the wood hazards were marked with flagging tape. Cant guarantee we got them all, but it helps you tune in to what your are looking for.
As always stay away from the Maumee River Channel, and the Grassy Island Cut (the farthest south part of the sailing area).
Ice near grassy gets a bit rough, so we have not yet ventured close to check ice there.
WARNING!! If you do not have experience, proper clothing, etc.... we advise you stay off the ice, or find someone who can escort you on and show you around.
IF there is a course set (two brightly colored marks about .75 mile apart) please be aware of other traffic. Iceboat racing is generally very safe because of the predictability of traffic patterns. Skaters, Cruising Iceboats, pedestrians, pets, etc. can cause accidents so please keep you heads up and watch all around if you are out on the ice.
AGAIN NO ICE IS SAFE ICE!

Wind finally came up about 11:45. 4 DNS set up so far, more rigging now. Renegade, Nite, and Sweet 16 will be setting up shortly as crew avail themselves.
So far most sailing has been done near shore. Ice is clear, mostly black (some places cloudy). 3.75-4.25” where we drilled. Possible hazards cracks or open water near grassy island, but have not ventured out clean as enough to see for sure. Mirage effect makes it look like could be open water. (So stay away from grassy for now). There is NO SNOW, just occasional drifts of hoar frost less than 1/8” deep. What looks like mast heaves are in fact beautiful frost formations at old cracks that disintegrate when you hit them.

Last night we got ice on the bay. The wind was too much and it was “Swiss cheesed” with open holes. Now with the bright sun and gusty winds it is quickly opening up. Hopefully this will blow out and the winds will die in time for the temp to drop and make us a nice plate of ice in the Maumee Bay. ... See MoreSee Less

Bay is still wide open. This is good news with snow on its way today. ❄️
Temperatures will drop rapidly Monday night and the winds will shift to the west potentially setting us up for a nice surface.
All we want for Christmas...
