This weekend (6-7th Feb) Lithuanian Ice-yacht championships 2016 took place on Eletrėnai lake. Ice sailors are facing very warm winter this year. Latest forecasts don’t show any good news. February statistically is the coldest month in Baltics, though it’s not the case this year.

Lithuanian ice sailors used the first posibility to organize national championships on Elektrėnai lake, as one weekend before championship was cancelled on Rekyva lake due to unsafe ice.

Ice-blokarts were starting in separate group in a smaller than usual ice area. This decision was taken due to safety reasons. Overall 26 pilots were competing in Ice-Blokart division, 10 ultralightweights, 11 lightweights and 5 heavyweights.

Over 5 races were carried in each weight category.
