windisfun.com is here to provide you with information about land sailing and ice sailing. We're based in northern Colorado, and enjoy sailing on land, ice and water. Our primary landsailing area is in southern Wyoming, and we generally make an annual trip to NM or NV to meet up with sailers from other states for some fun in the desert.
We ice sail in Colorado and Wyoming, basically wherever we can find ice and wind.
If you are interested in learning the sport, or just looking for more information, feel free to contact us. We'll do our best to answer any questions you may have. We are willing to take newbies out for a sail, whether on land or ice.
If you are in the northern Colorado area and are interested in building a rig of your own, we may be able to help you with the process.
Who we are
Rick and Kathy met at a kite festival; later Rick got Kathy hooked on landsailing. We try to spend as much time traveling and sailing as possible while still working. Our mini schnauzer "Dirbo" enjoys traveling and camping with us. We also spend time sailing our Merit 22 sailboat on a local lake. When not out sailing, we like to have family and friends over for brick oven pizza. Rick also enjoys setting up shop and helping people build new sailing rigs as well as recutting and modifying sails.
We got married on a dry lake during a land sailing event. Check out our wedding at Playas, NM 2012.
The "Sailing Club"
I periodically get inquiries about the "sailing club". There is no "club", other than a loosely organized group of people with common interests who like to get together and sail, build new rigs, or just socialize.
Through experience I've learned that when a bunch of people who are having fun decide to form a club, it often leads to no more fun. So, we don't have officers, by-laws, meetings, take attendance, collect dues, or any of the hassles and conflicts that arise from forming a club.
If you want to join us and have fun, feel free to do so. Just don't expect anything other than great camaraderie and lots of fun.
