Connor Named the Greatest Amercan Sailor

 Oshkosh Xtreme - Bilge PullersGeneva Takes Top Two

Oshkosh again gave us its best. After a summer of light air, the senior fleeters got to reign on Day One of the Xtreme. Forty-one sailors rode the waves surfing down Winnebago for three races in big air. Calm returned on Tuesday for light air racing. Casino Night was a hit as always with a photo booth never empty. 

Mitchell Lee with crew Hunter Sharpe took first followed by RJ Porter and Kyle Navin.

Junior Olympics - Lake Forest

Marred by a drowning of a non-sailor, the JO's got in only one race before life's lessons overshadowed the event. The regatta committee removed the sailors and took them Sunday to a community center for playtime. Parker Trepton and Charlie Hollister topped the 420 board. Lucia Loosbrock (Minnetonka) was 4th in the Green fleet. Aidan Boylan (Calhoun) topped the Blue fleet, Tim Siemers (Wayzata) took the Laser full rig division; Isabella Loosbrock (Minnetonka) the top Laser Radial division.
