ON THE GREEN: SAILING INTO THE COLD

Gelid temperatures for the past week gave members of the Red Bank-based North Shrewsbury Ice Boat & Yacht Club, and a mom-assisted young skater, a solid surface on which to play New Year’s Day.

With a National Weather Service  forecast of temperatures remaining below freezing through Sunday, that playground atop the Navesink River is expected to strengthen, setting the stage for iceboat racing this weekend, club Commodore Steve Foster tells redbankgreen.

Here’s the extended forecast, which includes up to two inches of snow Wednesday and Thursday.
