Wind storm hit hard here Saturday on Lake Champlain one sailbot sank and one flipped, also bunch of Kayaker were stuck on a breakwater. I guess the powerboats got the heck out of the way!!!

Funny how cig is winning the poll when the gladiator has been the most common step boat lately to be victim of ejections.
