X Champs - The Over (Above) View

The Start


With an almost ethereal feel, the next set of champions would be crowned - the last day of X champs began with a 7:30 AM hour gun. Fog creeped along the surface gradually revealing the lightened iimages of small sails through its wisps. At 8:28, the signal boat announced, "I see the windward marks." And the history book of 2011 opened its last page. Clear Lake, IA showed us all it had - light, near nonexistent wind and steady, fair winds, a party proclaimed as the best in history, omelets served on the senior signal boat at the generosity of Commodore Gerald Peterson, precise organization by chairs Chris Long and Margaret Osmundson - a grand time all around.


 And here it is - Clear Lake from the vantage point of a helicopter with Todd Jerrod on camera and Jim O'Rourke at the helm. The Junior Fleet is in the distance on this last day with each fleet feverishly completing three races B/B/B before a last start at noon.

Junior Fleet

It would come down to these two. Only Johnny Ferguson of Minnetonka or Charlie Kutschenreuter of Beulah would be crowned champ. Races 1-2 to Fergie, Race 3-4 to Kutsch, Race 5 Ferguson, Race 6 Kutschenreuter. It was a grand battle between two marvelous sailors.


And the champion is Johnny Ferguson with crew Edmund Chute. This represents the third generation of Fergusons to win the X Inland. If Kutch had won, he would have been the fourth Kutsch(Norris) in a family to win. It's all about tradition and love of the sport and love of each other as 500 sailors cheered all the victors.

from I-20 Champs at Green Lake


Day two of the Inland20 ILYA Champs at Green Lake brought some better wind, good racing and some big surprises.  Two back to back races were sailed in the morning, followed by another two back to backs in the afternoon.  Sailors fought their way through chop and varying wind speeds all day.  The final leg of the final race of the day lightened up considerably and even threatened to shut off.  Shortly after the last boat squeaked across the finish line the whole fleet was caught off guard as a major squall hit the lake out of nowhere.  More than half the fleet went over, and two boats lost their rigs in the gusts that were rumored to be as high as 45mph.  Thankfully plenty of race committee and assistance boats were on hand to help the capsized sailors.  Aside from some bumps and bruises the I-20 sailors were all fine and safe.  Unfortunately the squall meant the end of the regatta for this particular sailor, but it was certainly one screaming reach until the mast gave way!  Just another reminder that summertime weather conditions can change very quickly and we all need to be careful when enjoying the lakes.
