Here's a video from the (decommissioned) Badger Army Ammunition Plant 45 minutes north of Madison (map).
A couple of weeks agoI went up and sailed around a bit. Last Sunday Jim (US-61) and Scott (a new Madison blokart enthusiast) went up together.
Unfortunately, the 20+ kn winds never materialized, but we had some fun in the occasional ~7 kn breeze.

Sometimes the road isn't as smooth as you'd like...

Here's a video of Scott's first time in a blokart.
He was a really good sport about Jim and me racing around him...

Here's a video from yesterday sailing around a 415' (126m) parking lot course.
I'm following the fellow who let me sail (and flip) his blokart many years ago.
This was his first time out in quite a while, and the first time he's ever sailed a 5.5m (thankfully he's a very good sailor, so my loaner sail survived the day without any luff tears!).

Sorry for the length.
Right at the end there are a couple of "full speed" laps around the course to give an idea of what it was like:

A bit colder than last time I was out sailing...
Temperature just below freezing and wind 10-16 knots made for iceboat-like wind-chill.
Next time I'll remember my facemask and goggles (and probably put the POD on).

I did just pay my Worlds entry fee, so I'm already looking forward to some nice warm sailing at Ivanpah in a few months (hopefully after a good iceboat season!).

I was going through video footage from last year and edited up this short from September:
