Today despite the clouds and light rain, sailors after their club breakfast and then the traditional skippers meeting conducted by the RO Russ Sobota, at 1200hs the first warning signal finally happened, the fleets ended split in two, some choosing the right side and others the left in a lumpy wind from Southwest from 5 to 10 knots of wind.
By the first mark it was clear that the left side paid big, and getting out of the trouble for those in the left were quite difficult, but not an impossible task, CAN 1 with Bill Abbott, Joanne Abbott and Andrew Macrae from the back of the fleet in a continuous gain ended finishing second just after the leader BRA 73 with Kadu Bergenthal, Vilnei Goldmeier and Edgard Opptiz, in third came BRA 78 with Nelson Ilha, Manfredo Floricke and Henrique Ilha.
The second race a better one with a more constant wind a bit more from the right and with 8 to 13 knots of wind , found GER 1 Kwindoo team with Roman Koch, Alex Hasenclever and Joe Brase winning the bullet followed at this time by BRA 78 and then BRA 73, the race saw how after first lap, after the rounding mark USA 853 which rounded around 6 did a nice loop back to lift is middle miss America who decided to take a cold bath in the lake after the quick release shackle was too quick…And despite rounding almost last the windward mark some gains were possible later on at least to finish closer to the fleet.
After the racing teams enjoyed beer at the trailer parking lot and there waiting for the competitors it was Mr. kamps just counting and doing the math to find out that 7 out all sailors were in the past his crew. Some time later competitors startedv to prepare their evening attending an event “the beer fest” at the traditional brewery in Milwaukee - Estabrook Beer Garden.
The start for Wednesday will be at 1200hs and three races are planned, while after the racing the ISA will start its annual meetings.
