This is the home of "The Green Lake Ice Yacht Club". Our club has a hundred year history of iceboating on Green Lake with our members participating in many of the different classes ranging from DN's, Skeeters, and Renegades, to Nites and Sternsteerers. This site is intended to facilitate communication within the club and with other iceboaters throughout the world. Remember you haven't iceboated till your runners have hit our ice.

This iceboater gets it
Why we can't grow the sport is because we limit ourselves all the time. Take for instance the Daytona 500. They have fast cars, fast women, colorful cars and sponsors, and they draw people like crazy. In the vein of that our own Andy Gratton is working on the premise of the Oshkosh 500 I believe this is going to go big time. It is all about matched runners and the like when you are taking the big turns.
I hear Andy is boning up on all the Nascar stuff, watching lots of Days of Thunder, The Ballad of Ricky Bobby, and a hell of a lot of Speedweek.
