Prange Takes Title

Bilge Pullers  

Okauchee welcomed 43 C scows to the annual Wisconsin Yachting Association event. The invitational was chaired by Alana and Briana Smith and what a party they created. Cocktails on Friday night, a great Pig Roast on Saturday with enthusiastic, youthful participants. Even the "old guys" felt young with the contagious energy of youth sailors - men and women alike. But--- make no mistake ---- on the water it was all experience that prevailed. The "Bad Ol' Boys" led the way. Mark Prange and Bob Stelter won the event followed by two more Okauchee "old guys". Steve Schmidt who cheated and took a younger Matt Prange. finished second, Chris Pinahs was third. Seems it paid to know the Okauchee home lake. PRO Larry Krause provided the full complement of five races in varying condition. The event serves as a warmup for the ILYA Champs at Mendota beginning Friday.
