Jim McDonagh US 5214 Wins Western Silver Fleet the Right Way

The DN Western Regional Championships' Silver Fleet (the Real Racing) started off in big breeze with Minnesota's Jim McDonagh jumping out to a huge lead early in the first race, only to be overtaken later in the race, finishing a close second.

In the biting, well beyond brisk breeze, after the conclusion of the Gold Fleet's racing, Silver Fleet race Seven started with most of the gold fleet watching as they took their boats down, the scorers on the ice, and maybe spectators, missing the among the best racing of the entire regatta.

Jim sailed one "heck of a race" in the final race. In a tight fleet with four individual race winners, trailing the leading pack of 4-5 boats at the first downwind mark... substantially... maybe 300-400 yards... To just eek out a victory in the last 2 boatlengths of the race for a Win in Race Seven and consequently the regatta, on a tie breaker.

Western Regionals | Completed

On sunday the ice was great. Very flat and smooth, with plenty of bite. The wind had moderated a bit, so it was super fast, but not so out of control as saturday.

We got in three races for the gold, and four for the silver, so both fleets got in the full seven races.

I'll try to get the race results so I can post the final results. I can say that sunday did mixup the standings from saturday.

Western Regionals | Saturday

flag is down | gold fleetPoygan Lake is a great host for the 2004 Western Regionals.

The Gold fleet raced four races today, and the Silver fleet got in three.

The weather report on friday was calling for saturday to be 20-30mph winds with gusts up to 40. In the morning while setting up it seemed like the weather man was going to be right. The wind started off fresh and cold, and it was clocking around, so by the time the wind had settled in and the course was setup the wind was probably more like 15-23mph. The first race got off about 12:30-1:00. After that we quickly got through seven races, four gold, three silver.

Western Regionals are ON!!! Poygan Lake WI

This is a loose trascription from Couch's IDNIYRA Western Region Hotline Regatta Announcement, it is by no means official:

After two days of searching for suitable ice, having lost excellent pieces on Green Bay and access to excellent ice on Northern Lake Winnebago they are pleased to announce an Outstanding Piece of ice is located at Poygan Lake, near Oshkosh Wi. The same site as last year's Western Regional Championship Regatta... The Ice is characterized as a 9.9 with no apparent open water. The Western Rear Commodore recomments the longest, fastest runners in your arsenal to compete.

Posted by: John Davenport US4961 on December 30, 2003 at 19:20:38:

We are looking at two outstanding pieces of ice. One is the Northeast corner of Lake Winnebago launching just West of "High Cliff State Park" and the other East of the Fox River on Green Bay near the University. Both have been sailed and are large and quite good. Tomorrow they will be sailed again and evaluated. Just a note, Green bay is only 1/2 an hour farther than upper Winnebago going north through Milwaukee. Stay posted. Hotline is 414-299-9305
