With the first day of racing in the books, it is not hard to understand why I-20 and M-16 sailors might be a little tired.  With sunny skies, 10-12 MPH breeze, and 85 degree temperatures at Cedar Lake, WI one could definitely leave the foul weather gear at home.  Even the most fair weather sailor would have to admit, this is picture perfect weather.  And with picture perfect weather comes picture perfect sailing.
   The wind direction would only allow for 1/2 mile courses, so a lot of laps were necessary this weekend.  The first two races were sailed back to back in shifty and gusty winds, each requiring five laps before you could be done. 
   After 10 spinnaker sets and takedowns, the I-20 fleet was ready for lunch.  Aaron Lynn and Steven Catlin traded 1st and 2nds the first two races, with John Spargo not far behind.
The afternoon brought more breeze and more great racing.  The first race was an endurance race, as the I-20 counted 6 laps before the winning gun went off.  The big breeze and short courses made for quick rides downwind.  The fourth and final race of the day was 4 laps, with Aaron Lynn winning both afternoon races.
   With 20 sets and takedowns in their pockets, the I-20s sailors are dialed in and a little worn out.  One more race awaits tomorrow, with much of the standings yet to be decided, so stay tuned!
   A special thanks to Rick Trester and the Cedar Lake Yacht Club.  The event has been first class so far and even with the wind direction being a little big difficult, the race committee has done a great job.

 NATIONAL CChris Andert keeps the C fleet informed with daily emails and now "twitter". The contest now seems to be between Pewaukee's Augie Barkow and LaBelle's Peter Keck.
Standing through four races were:
1. V11 Augie Barkow - 10 points
2. OO88 Peter Keck - 23
3. A14 Paul Reily - 40
4. OO3 Leif Evensen - 42
5. V137 Jim Gluek - 52
6. I113 Vincent Porter - 52
7. MO59 Scott Tillema - 54
8. P3 Lance Avery - 58
9. M20 Tim Krech - 59
10. A136 Ed Eckert - 64
The editor watched beautiful starts of Race 5. Five was hopefully the magic number as I had to leave but black flags, wind shifts and a most competive fleet completed one more race but results are not posted at this time. Barkow and Keck distanced themselves even more.
  Thirty MCs (including Pewaukee sailors who were dislodged by the C Nationals) completed three races with a tight trio at the top. At day's end, Bruce Gallagher (Pine) leads with a 3-3-3 for 9 total points. Colin Smith and David Porter are tied with 10 points but Smith sailed a great 1-8-1 day. Final results tomorrow.
