This is New Jersey: Ice Boating on the Navesink


ice boating, navesink river, red bank, new jerseyIt’s been a while since I have been able to witness the ice boaters on the Navesink River. So peaceful. So quiet. And, so dang cold. Nothing like 35 mile an hour winds and a frozen river to get the crazy ice boater’s blood pumping. For me, a couple of quick pictures and it was back in the car.

Ice boating on the Navesink has been going on for well over 100 years.  Marine park is the home of the North Jersey Ice Boat and Yacht company founded in 1880.  For more information about the club, upcoming events, ice boating lessons and some amazing photos, check out their website http://nsibyc.com/. And be sure to bundle up if you’re planning to be a spectator. I’m still shivering.

“This is New Jersey” is our Saturday “way of life” feature bringing you images of New Jersey.  We welcome submissions from photographers and amateur photographers.
