Brown Three-peats as Nite National Champion!

The word out of Pewaukee Wisc. this Super Bowl Sunday is that Scott Brown sailed his beloved Betsy (Nite #559) to his third straight Nite National Championship.

Details are sketchy but all that really matters is that the local boy did good.

Join me in congratulating Scott.

Nice job Browner!

Three peats are not too easy. You got the nite tuned up!!

Humble Browner

Scott was tied for first with Will Perrigo after 7 races. They lined up n the 1&2 spots, both knowing that they needed to beat the other to win the regatta! Unlike softwater sailing where you may be able to "match race", iceboats and their speed do not usually allow such a tactic. On the 2nd weather mark rounding, they were neck and neck at the rounding. Scott was just to windward, runner to runner. A puff hit Scott launching him a bit, causing Will to jibe away and into weaker wind. Scott continued on port and cruised to a victory!
Very cool, wish I could have been there to watch this epic battle.
Congratulations also to Terry Irwin, previously of Tonka, for his solid 3rd place in the gold fleet.
Also to local nite sailor, Jerry Krebsbach for getting back in the saddle after a few years hiatus.
