Finaly sweet taste of victory! Consistent sailing in the top paid dividend. It was a big challenge to free up my head from all bad emotions after epic fails in Warsaw Cup. I knew that in order to win any event I need to win with myself first. An extra week of no sailing helped a lot as well.
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.
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.
