Facebook makes it too easy to share the on-the-ice experience from my phone because it's a matter of pushing one button, an irresistible feature when struggling to keep hands warm in 10F/-12C temperatures. At the end of a long, tiring day on the ice, posting to iceboat.org often ranks low on the priority list. Eating, a hot shower, and sleeping leave little time for the effort that the regatta updates deserve on iceboat.org.
The goal of this auxiliary website to iceboat.org is to share in real time the excitement of iceboat regattas across all platforms- including this easily accessible and mobile-friendly website, Facebook, and Twitter. Everything posted here will automatically post to Facebook and Twitter. Those of you who aren't connected to Facebook will be able to see these updates and not miss anything.
The 2015 ISA and Renegade Championship will be my first opportunity to try out this concept. So stand by for updates from the ice on Friday, March 20, 2015.
