 E Nationals
Jewett Tops Field; Crystal Lake takes both race wins
 A final count of 84 E scows started racing Friday at Lake Geneva for the 2013 E Nationals. PRO Bruce Golison kept the fleet on shore under postponement until 11:00. It took until 12:30 to attempt a first race which never got off. It was another hour before the wind pressure built to support a quality race. But two races later, the fleet saw Kevin Jewett on top the leaderboard with  a 2-3. The day belonged to Crystal Lake as Robert Terry and Mike Dow won the races.
The color downwind is breathtaking as spinnakers fill the entire width of Lake Geneva. Larry Kmiecik, photographer, has photos from the water and air. Imagine a starting line which is 0.6 miles long!
