EP 41: 'Hard Water' Sailing
Play • 53 min

For most of us in the Northeast, sailing is not a year-round sport. But that is not the case with Newport’s own James “T” Theiler. T is one of the many sailors of the New England Ice Yacht Association who trade in their shorts and flip flops for long underwear and a helmet when the temps dip below freezing. This, they say, is “hard water” sailing. 

Fresh off of winning the North American Ice Boating Championships and competing in Worlds over in Europe, T joins us in the studio to talk about the thrill of ice boating and why he doesn't bat an eye about driving for 36 hours to find the perfect frozen lake. Listen in!
