Swedish fail

Early January 2021 Robert and myself could not wait for first ice in Poland. At the same time ice report from Sweden was very promising. We delayed the trip 3 times and  finally we found best weather window to enjoy sailing. And weather defeated us. All wind forecasts were wrong. Fellow snow showed up and after one day at beautiful Orsa Camp we decided to go back home. 

In sunny windless day we had fantastic skating. This is also part of iceboating.

P.S. Lake Orsasjon is on our black list due to unpredictable wind forecasts.

Knee steering fixture

Steering with your knees is nothing unusual. Telescopic type of tiller is straight and requires  additional fixture to be grabbed by the knees. This is just another idea of how it could be done. This piece od DN jewelery is 3D printed with carbon fibre filament making it very strong and super light with only 34 grams (1.2 oz).

This particular fixture is designed for 34mm in diameter tiller pipe but can be customized to any desired cross section. In my case it is used for Vaiko Vooremaa’s hull.
