Joe and Griffen Rolander have compiled a most impressive 3-5-1-2-2-1-1 to capture the title over current top contenders. The Geneva brothers have shown consistency in a second day where a beautiful four races were completed by both fleets. That leaves only one race for the juniors. The race is on for second with four points separating Minnetonka's Addy Ferguson, last year's runner up, and White Bear's Eddie Cox. The scores get tight in fourth through tenth. It is family everywhere in this fleet. Two Pewaukee Feichtmeiers and two Beulah Barrs are in the top fifteen. Cousins from Okauchee from the Smith family tree also in the top fifteen. In terms of lake bragging rights, we have four Beulah's in the top fifteen, two Minnetonka's, two Okauchees, two Genevas and two Pewaukees. One race left to go but the sailors reached the level to receive one throw out on Day 2. Junior pics by Stacie Carlson

Results could not be tighter in the Senior Fleet. The top four are separated by a five-point spread with two races to go on Day 3. Davis and RJ Porter from Geneva sit on top but, whoa Nelly, the field is packed. Last year's Junior winner is one point ahead of fellow Genevan and two-time runner up Michael and Mitchell Lee. Junior winner George Kutschenreuter and John Barr are one point behind that. In fourth is a last year Junior top five and two-race winner (also from Geneva - there's magic in that water) Charlie Morris with Mac Six. Fifth through seventh again have a five-point spread.
Four LaBelle sailors grace the top fifteen, three Geneva, two Beulah, one Delavan (who trains on Geneva), one Cedar, one Minnetonka, one Pewaukee, one Cedar and one North Lake.
The most touching moments have been to see that one exceptional race with a sailor coming across in the top fifteen unexpectedly. Congrats to all the sailors. Today the sailors have two races to begin at 9:30.
BIG NEWS - LaBelle took the volleyball championship for the second year. With Oshkosh sporting "Not in my house" and Beulah holding a "mandatory" practice, this is the real substance of the regatta. Kidding aside, the event is marked with only the most wonderful reports. The highest accolade was heard, "We should have the Champs here every year." No higher praise could be given.
