    That is fantastic! If only the lakes around here froze up like that. Where do you live?

    Stavanger, on the south west coast of Norway, -but contrary to what you may think, winters aren't especially harsh in this part of our country. These excellent ice conditions really never occurs, so I'm glad I took the opportunity that year!

    You need a loop of cord going around both knees and tied to the bottom of the mast.. The loop around both is so it don't matter which way you are sailing.

    Thanks, but this worked perfectly fine without such a loop. Contrary to what I feared, the ladle-outfitted mast-bottom did not "try to get away", but stayed in position with minimal attention/effort.
    The improvement i would suggest, is to rig the sail such that the boom comes much higher up, -maybe on a mast that is normally to long for this sail, or by setting the extention to its highest position. I had to bend down a little too much.
