The 2007 Northwestern Regatta

Menominee, MI
Green Bay, Lake Michigan

On Friday there was too much wind..
On Saturday there was a pretty fresh breeze as well and we got in 2 races per fleet, (DN, Renegade, Skeeter E, Skeeter A,B,D, Stern Steerers)

It was pretty crazy out there.. with some cracks in the ice, and we even abandoned the last race after Steve Orlebeke went into a working crack going upwind... that was it for the day..

Before the Stern Steerers got off their first race (they go last), there was a little incident in the pits... the duece got loose..

Sunday we finished up with 1 race for each fleet.

On Sunday it was snap'n, and we had two more DN's retire because there runners broke.. Take a look at the results and you'll see a lot of DNF's in the DN's for both days..

I ended up surviving the combat zone and won the event!
