Marblehead Open

The lake is now confirmed as ice free, so all is looking good for the Marblehead Open Event this Saturday with sunny intervals and light showers forecast for the day with a moderate North Westerly wind (ie. straight down the lake, our favoured direction).

The following entries are confirmed, but anyone is welcome to turn up and pay on the day.

As of Tuesday lunchtime, the lake is frozen over.

The forecast over the next few days is for considerably warmer weather, but it is looking increasingly unlikely that the lake will be clear for Wednesday sailing.
