January 21 – 27, 2018
Host Region: Eastern Lakes

It’s never too early to mark you calendars for the 2018 ice sailing season. The DN North American championships will be hosted by the Eastern Lakes region. The dates are January 21-27, 2018.
Registration will take place on Sunday, January 21 and racing will begin on Monday, January 22.

Via Vice Commodore Warren Nethercote who recently attended the European Secretaries Meeting in Warsaw, Poland.

“The meeting set dates for key regattas in 2018, starting with the Gold Cup. Estonia will be the host nation for the 2018 World Cup and European Championships, February 25th to March 3rd, 2018. If the weather and ice conditions allow the regatta to be sailed in Estonia it will be an opportunity to celebrate the centenary of iceboating in that country. Other regatta dates spun off the dates for the Gold Cup: February 5th to 9th, 2018 for the Junior DN and Ice Opti Worlds and January 21st to 27th, 2018 for the North American Championships.”
