Kent Haeger and Mike Greeson win the Nan Norris Beulah Challenge


Saturday morning brought big breezes as 33 C scows headed out onto Lake Beulah. After several starts, the fleet got off a good start to the first race of the Nan Norris Beulah Challenge. Kent Haeger got out to an early lead and kept it the entire race to win race one. As the breeze continued to build hitting a consistent 25 mph, the fleet had some amazing rides before the race committee decided to take the fleet in for lunch as they watched boats flip, and lose control. After a fantastic pulled pork lunch and some college football, the fleet got back on the water to complete two more races. The afternoon had medium breeze and George Kutschenreuter (grandson of Nan Norris) took race number two.

The last race on Saturday had a guest co-skipper appearance as Joe Kutschenreuter took over the B-77 with Molly Forbes as a crew. Joe and Molly battled for race three and in the final leeward mark rounding, took the lead and kept it to finish the race in first. The sailors went in for a delicious Mexican dinner. Sunday brought cold temperatures, rain, and big breezes. The race committee postponed to wait for the rain to pass and the conditions to get more favorable. The fleet headed out for one last race in heavy, puffy breezy. Joe Kutschenreuter with Beth Kutschenreuter  (daughter of Nan Norris) and Molly Forbes brought the last race home again with a bullet.

The sailors came in to pack up their boats, watch awards, and watch the packer game. Will Norris (son of Nan Norris) presented the awards and said the regatta had the three neceessary components of a great regatta.
1. A great club
2. Wind
3. Carnage

Thanks to the Lake Beulah Yacht Club for hosting a wonderful event.
