Cedar C Powerhouse Dominates Blue Chip
What a year for Ed Eckert! He culminates a year with a WYA win, ILYA 5th and now takes home the C Blue Chip title. Supercrews Matt and Becca Schmidt have been with Ed for years making this a practiced and experienced team. But Jim Tewes with Jenny Jaessing/Jordan Fritz and Paul Reillly with substitute crew Billly Butz made it look Cedar all the way in 3rd and 4th. Only Augie Barkow with Jeff Niedziela could crack the Cedar monopoly. The perennial host Pistakee sent these results:

2010 Inland 20 National Championship
Lake DuBay, Knowlton, Wisconsin - September 17-19, 2010

Lake Wawasee boats low side hiking downwind.  WA-38 "Black Eye" Ben Herdrich and Rob Queisser.  WA-5 "No Problem" Justin Bolles and John Hayashi
Submitted by Anita Bersie Chabalowski
Light winds and low side hiking best describe the 2010 Inland20 National Championship Regatta.  Eighteen boats from across the Midwest descended upon scenic Lake DuBay in central Wisconsin for the thirteenth annual event.  Boats were greeted by light morning rains for rigging on Friday, with conditions clearing in plenty of time for afternoon racing.  The first race looked good to begin with medium winds out of the southwest, but winds lightened for each leg of the race as the race committee was forced to shorten course.   Fourteen of the eighteen yachts finished race number one within the time limit, and racing was called for the day with hopes for more wind on Saturday.  Sailors awoke to chilly conditions on Saturday but happy to have wind for racing, this time out of the North.  PRO Susanna Hanson from LaCrosse, Wisconsin and her Lake DuBay volunteer crew had their hands full all day as winds alternated between lightening and building, swinging back and forth from North to West.  Sailing skills were certainly put to the test during the three races completed on Saturday, as the sailors best able to predict the shifts and puffs emerged on top.  Report time was moved up on Sunday morning with the hopes of completing the final two races of the event.  Alas, the early-fall weather did not cooperate as Lake DuBay saw no more than a whisper of wind all morning.  Normally known for his heavy air Winnebago expertise, Oshkosh sailor and 2010 ILYA Champ Aaron Lynn (J-11) along with regular crew Keith Rosenbaum showed their versatility and won the light wind event.  Close behind Aaron & Keith were John Spargo & Mike Hamer (H-111) in second place.  Rouding out the podium in third place were young Wawasee sailors Ben Herdrich & Rob Queisser (WA-38).  The National Inland20 Scow Sailing Association would like to thank Rear-Commodore Joe Terry, the Lake DuBay Sailing Association volunteers and PRO Susanna Hanson for putting on a top notch event despite the challenging wind conditions of the weekend!
