Venue, Weather & Ice conditions
Update #2 // Racing cancelled | 2015-02-04
Unfortunately we won't be able to arrange the regatta this weekend due to the poor conditions.
Update #1 | 2015-02-04
Currently we don't know of any possible venues. Wherever we look there's either open water or too much snow. If any of you reading this have some valuable information, please post in the DN Sweden FB-group or send a message to email@example.com.
We will do our best to give you a couple of nice alternatives as soon as we know where the regatta will be held.
Västkustens Isjaktsällskap (West Coast Ice Yacht Association) is based in Gothenburg and runs the organized ice yachting for the whole west coast area.
It was founded in 1971 by ice yacht enthusiast Lennart Vedin from Stockholm who had moved to Fjärås near Kungsbacka. He accomplishments many great things for both VIS and the Swedish ice yacht community before he sadly passed away in the mid 80's. In memory of his efforts and achievements VIS set up the trophy "Vedins Minne", which is awarded to the winner of their annual ranking regatta.
