Great Western Challenge: Oh, What a Day!

Today was for the history books. 80 sailors dukeing it out on fast, fast, "cadillac" ice. Full on, pedal to the metal racing. Five races completed and nobody has any idea who is leading. All the major players scored a DNF for a variety of reasons in a day that saw an inordinate amount of very scary crashes. Still, when all was done, everyone agreed it really does not get any better than today.

Tomorrows forecast of 10 mph winds and 32 degrees temps could make this one of the more memorable Great Western Challenges.

Special thanks to the DNers from Madison and the Four Lake ice Yacht Club for hosting the Happy Hour at Springers. It was a great way to extend an already fun but exhausting day!
