WC 2020 Kwindoo Replay

WC 2020 Kwindoo Replay

Dear Fellow Iceboaters,

This time last year we concluded the 2020 DN World Championship at the scenic Lake Orsa, Sweden. Please enjoy the replay of the event via the tracking provided by Kwindoo and our volenteering icesailors. With the cold weather moving in there are multiple events planned and on the way. Should anyone in the community wish to use the service this season, I do have an organiser’s account with which I would be happy to set up regattas free of charge. With it you can help the job of your Race Committee by providing valuable information, your loved ones at home and the iceboating community can follow and cheer you along from afar and you can also rewatch each race at any time later on. Don’t be shy to reach out by sending an email to with the planned location and date of the regatta and the contact information of the chief organiser/RC.

WC/EC 2020 – Closing Post

Dear Fellow Icesailors, Frieds of Icesailing,

Today we have finished the 2020 World and European Championships. The weather conditions were challenging.

As you know Orsasjön was the only lake in Europe to provide sufficient ice conditions for a regatta hosting 150 icesailors. The wind was moderate the first two days, but we still could sail 7 races, thus on the fourth day we finished the WC.

The 2020 DN World Champion is: P- 155, Lukasz Zakrzewski

We spent the last three days on the ice without wind, hoping that on the last day of the event we can sail the Europeans. Though we had the wind we were waiting for, but the ice conditions did not allow us to sail the European Championship.
I would like to thank you all who came and participated,  the Race Committee for their professional work, Orsa Camping for hosting our event and their guests who tolerated our busy and sometimes loud behaviour and a Special Thanks to all the supporters and volunteers.

WC/EC 2020 – Cracks

Dear Fellow Icesailors,

I’ve just realized, that the map of the cracks in my earlier post doesn’t work for all devices. If it is the case for you after pressing the link wait for the map to be loaded, then in the Google map menu choose “ My places” – “ Maps” and choose the map “WC/EC 2020”
