2018 World’s & EC Update

Time for a quick update before heading to  the lake. Racing began at noon yesterday on the first day of the EC because of brutally cold  temps in the morning. A C qualifier, B qualifier, an A, and another B were sailed. Ron Sherry us44 took the first race.

It’s cold again this morning but lighter winds are predicted which will make for challenging conditions. Off to the lake!

2018 Worlds & European Championship: Day 1


It was a bluebird day for iceboating racing but a cold one. Winds were light to medium which allowed for ten races.
After placing well in the first race, Chris Berger had some tough luck at the start of the second Gold when he lost his halyard seconds before the race started and was unable to compete. After a tough first race, Ron Sherry made some changes that brought him up to second place in the next two Gold races. T Theiler kept climbing in the results all day, ending the day with a 4th. Tomorrow will be the finale of the Gold Cup and the European Championship will begin on Wednesday.
