ice yachting

A whole new sport to add to the bucket list: ice yachting in Holland. Hans Brinker and his cronies had me dreaming about long days spent skating on the canals when I was little, but adding in an ice-boat and sails ramps up my desire to experience a Dutch winter even more. Clearly I need to spend more time in cold climates.

Also, how beautiful and surreal is this landscape? It looks as though the skaters are heading towards certain doom. Ah, ice, what tricks you play.
