Opti Champs at Pewaukee - Simply Wonderful

 Alex Keck and Lucia Loosbrock Take Titles --- FULL RESULTS

One hundred sixteen sailors, 150 volunteers, 800 meals,  15 race committee officials, 45 trophies, 2 marvelous regatta chairs, one stupendous regatta. Another year is in the record books and what a group of sailors we can boast. Alex Keck of Nagawicka via Beulah wins the event after a 4th and 3rd in prior years. In eight races, Keck threw out a ninth and finished with 28 total points - a fine, fine regatta! On the Green fleet, six races were completed. Lucia Loosbrock of Minnetonka sailed consistently all regatta with a worst race of 8th. The 53 (!) Green fleeters speak of the future of our local fleets. 


Back to Pewaukee - "never have I attended an event where it ran so smoothly. From launch, car parking, boat parking, registration. It all just flowed so smoothly" --- from lake Geneva mom Dana Rolander. "Wow, free popsicles all day" - a young tyke on day two. Dunk tank, root beer, smiles all around - Pewaukee pulled out all the stops. This is the sixth of eight events this short season for this active club. The E Blue Chip and US Sailing Champion of Champions will conclude this year.

More Awards

 The Kate Goes Sportsmanship Award was presented to Green fleeter Quinn Kaiser who retired from a race after fouling a boat causing it to turtle and become unable to finish the race. Dr. Tom Hodgson presented the award which was especially memorable for a Pewaukee crowd who recall the loss of a medal for Peter Barrett due to a RAF (retirement after finishing). How fortunate we are to have such role models for our sailors.
