Okoboji Provides Two Light Air Races 

BURDICK TAKES FIRST TWO RACES IN CLASS E
Burdick finish at ILYA
In two light air races, Andy Burdick came from behind in the first race but owned race 2. Burdick consistently read the wind to show the fleet the way. Kevin Jewett was always there at the top and sits in overall second. The shifts were tough to read.  Motorboat wake with resultant waves made the lake even more challenging. Comments were,"Why didn't that shift come to me?" or "Can we sail PHRF handicapping?" And that referred to the lead Burdick and others had on the fleet in race two. For E fleet results, click here
 
COLBURN LEADS BY SIX POINTS
Colburn at finish 
Lake Harriet's Bill Colburn sailed a 1-4 to top the MC results board. Okoboji sailor Lance Avery with a 10-1 is in second.  Click here for the full results. The local fleet has shown up in force.  The impressive Brad Farrar and Steve Avery are running the event and sailing besides. 
 
JAN AND DEBBIE GILL TOP M-16 FLEET
The three-boat M-16 fleet is consistent with the Gill team winning both races. Jack Zimmerscheit was second in both races and Carly Eckert was third in both races.
 
Pat Dunsworth photos will appear the rest of the week when internet connectivity problems are resolved.
 
Social
Ojoboji YC was a relaxed gathering spot yesterday afternoon and evening for a free games night. Sailors lounged on the lawn, children chased with dogs, the outside walk-up bar was busy, Okoboji members assured food was plentiful. It was great to see everyone's respected and Okoboji's legendary Jerry Huse at the club.
 
The local race committee is a force to behold. Phil Petersen explained each year the OYC purchases another clothing or RC softgood for its cadre of volunteers. They looked sharp as they entered by the droves. What a fortunate club to brag such a large number of trained personnel. 
 
Day one done and on to a hopeful three races today with less motorboat chop.
 
BARKOW IN FOURTH WITH TIGHT SCORES
Team Seven logoSally Barkow put together a 6-11 and now goes into a layday. The gold and silver are held by the Brits (15 points) and the team from the Netherlands (18 points). Australia and the US are tied (32) with AUS winning the tiebreaker. The first discarded race is in effect.
