Last night I learned that the 2014 Central Regional DN Iceboating Championship will be held this Saturday & Sunday (March 15-16, 2014) on West Grand Traverse Bay. The primary launch site will be the DNR launch at Hilltop Rd. and M-22, approximately 9 miles north of Traverse City and 5 miles south of Suttons Bay on the Leelanau Peninsula.

More details about the event at DNA America and learn more about the International DN ice boat (a Michigan original) at Michigan in Pictures!

This should be a great event for spectators and ice boating on Grand Traverse Bay is pretty rare!

  1. I'd love to watch these races but seeing as how I'm in CA it won't be possible.
    Everyone in the area should watch! It's an art to race these speed demons across the ice. Much more fun than NASCAR! ;)
