Schmidt wins Icebreaker


23 Boats competed at the ice breaker last weekend. Friday night greeted sailors with beautiful weather and a fish fry. The bar was in full swing until the early hours of the morning with some sailors finding a place to sleep on the lawn of the club. Saturday morning started with a rainstorm and hail (luckily the lawn sleeper was woken up by this point) followed by big wind. The RC reported a gust to 38 mph standing on the end of the pier. Sailors waited for the wind to die down but it kept coming strong. With no races completed it was derby time. Sunday morning looked light but was a very pleasant 5-10 mph. The first race was won by Joe Schaub with Steve Schmidt not far behind. Race two was started but ended up being a one tack beat so was called back for a restart. Great call by the RC on that one. Race 2 was started again and had decent breeze through the first 4 legs. The last leg up however, the lake went flat. With most of the fleet on the left and a few brave souls on the right, it was a battle to the end trying to find the breeze. In the end the left won out and Schmidt overtook Schaub to win the second and final race. Steve Schmidt won the event through the tie breaker. We would like to officially welcome the J-99, Charlie Harrison to the fleet. As the C fleet’s first Oshkosh boat since I have been around it was great to see a new lake designation. Thank you Cedar Lake yacht club for the great hospitality as always. The regatta forgot to award the ball buster award and is taking nominations on its facebook page.
