50th Annual C Blue Chip

 John Kolius stars as the mystery guest at this special edition of the C Blue Chip at Pistakee. The morning hours were spent relaxing and some reported boats were found in a bar - no, not C boaters! The event will feature a Black Tie affair tonight. Here is a report from Cedar's Tina Weber via Blackberry.
The wind filled in around 2pm, and the fleet started Race 1 at 3pm with a clean start on the first attempt. The course was a W 2+. Tom Frank had a strong start and led the race for the first two laps but wasn't able to hold on to the lead for the final leg.
Race 1 Top 10 finishes:
1. A-22 Jim Tews
2. A-77 Dave Baldus
3. OO-7 Kurt Mihelich
4. B-12 Kent Haegar
5. E-89 Tim Schmidt
6. V-11 Augie Barkow
7. Y-7 Tom Frank
8.  V-722
9.  SL-11 Cam O'Neil
10. M-20 Tim Krech
The second race also started without any recalls and the fleet sailed a W 2+. The top boats were cut off on the last downwind leg by a pontoon boat going over 50mph being chased by several cigarette boats. What a scene!
Race 2 Top 10 Finishes:
1. V-11 Augie Barkow
2. E-99 Chris Pinahs
3. A-14 Paul Reilly
4. A-22 Jim Tews
5. M-20 Tim Krech
6. B-12 Kent Haegar
7. 00-99 Dave Keck
8. 00-824
9. M-10 Jack Strothman
10. A-136 Ed Eckert
There are 42 boats registered (not 40), and all sailed Races 1 & 2.
