Eckert/Schmidt Win US Sailing Champion of Champions

 ed eckert  

The series became closer on the last day but Ed Eckert and Matt Schmidt held on to win the US Sailing prestigious event. Augie Barkow and Jeff Niedziela closed the gap but the Cedar Lake, WI duo took home the top prize after an entire series in first place. This regatta concludes a season where Pewaukee hosted eight regattas sponsored by a faithful group of sponsors who made each event much more enjoyable - can you have more enjoyment than Pewaukee?

Ed Eckert is a college All-American from Navy and was a most proficient team racer, in his day. "His day" does not seem to be over as he has won C Nationals, WYA, Blue Chip all in the past two years. Ed currently is building the Cedar Lake Sailing School with a family of three young sailors of his own. Matt Schmidt is a former Univ of Wisconsin sailor who competed in nationals all four years. He recently won the last race of the E Blue Chip with his all girl crew of Becca and Patty Schmidt and Christine Niedziela Malcolm. These two sailors are uncle and nephew and have been together for eight years on the C scow.

In order to host this event, Pewaukee recruited 22 C scows for the competitors. The logistics of borrowing and maintaining these boats was a feat unto itself without the usual hospitality known as Pewaukee. Thanks to AJ Schweda, Dave Dex, Greg Riemer and Nancy Niedziela for all that went into this national event.

Congrats to Matt and Ed and Pewaukee for a great year.
