Ken Johnson began his 2015 sailing year by skating around Lake Kegonsa in sub-zero temperatures. Johnson’s Nite iceboat can do 60 miles per hour in the right conditions so it was fun, but boy was it cold! Johnson was more than happy to escape the arctic chill of Wisconsin for the sunny skies and warm temperatures of Key West, where he will compete in the 28th annual race week for the first time since 2009. Johnson completed the long drive to the southernmost tip of the United States on Monday night and by the next morning was aboard his C&C 121 Grateful Red, which was berthed at Historic Seaport. “Last week I was sailing on ice. Right now, I’m worried about the ice melting in my rum drink,” Johnson said as he leisurely began preparing his boat for Quantum Key West 2015.
