Visited Poolburn yesterday with Dave and Ryan hoping to get a last good skate here and we were surprised to find as much ice as we did. No plank needed to get on. Thick ice over most of the dam. Skated around the main island but had to walk once around open water. Pressure cracks have opened in the ice and left water in various places. Edges were soft or open water. As we left a North West wind was ripping up the ice fast. Managed a short ice-sail with the kitewing - first one this season!!
