Ice waits for no one. Harken Marketing Intern Samuel Bartel is obsessed with ice sailing. To him, hard water yachting is the pinnacle of fun. Candidly, he’s more than a little bit obsessed. There’s one thing he really regrets: not getting into it sooner!

Why make the same tragic mistake Samuel did? Don’t let another winter go by sitting on the couch. Get involved in this outrageously fun sport now! If you wait any longer, you might miss out on the best experience of your life—or at least the best used equipment of the year. The time to start is NOW, while you’re sweating.

Watch this video series to learn how to get into it THIS YEAR:

2021 U.S. Nationals Video

Professional video of the U.S. Nationals from Peter Norton KA2, who not only competed, after each of his races, he flew a drone or filmed with a long lens camera. Peter then generously handed it over to one of our newest members, Sam Bartel US1011 (who placed 4th in the Silver fleet in his first regatta), and Sam edited the footage.
