The Four Lakes Ice Yacht Club was founded in 1921 in order to promote and sanction the sport of ice yacht racing. One of the first Madison skippers to gain national prominence was Carl Bernard. In just one amazing season, Carl, at the helm of the Fritz, a Hudson River-style of boat, aced three major regattas- the Hearst, Stuart, and Northwestern. (All three are still major ice boat regattas.) The Fritz was built by legendary ice boat builder Frank Tetzlaff. Note the Mary B, another Tetzlaff creation, in the background.
