Favorable ice brings regatta to Spicer, Minn.


SPICER -- This weekend, around 40 ice sailors will gather on Green Lake in Spicer to participate in what will be for many the first ice sailing regatta of the season.

The Western Region Championship, sponsored by the International DN Ice Yachting Racing Association, is being held at Green Lake this year because it's one of the few larger lakes in the Midwest that has ice favorable enough for sailing.
