Chickawaukee Friday Jan 26

A dozen or more boats sailed Chicky on lovely ice in moderate NW air. We had Nites, Meade, Gambit, DNs of course, a gaggle of Cheapskates and antique Tippy. We did indeed have the World’s Cheapskate Championship with four boats competing. Bryce Geele won two out of three races and took posession of the Cheapskate Trophy. The regatta rules established by Doug Raymond are: 3 boats minimum, three races. Winner gets to take home the trophy until the next regatta, which could happen any time.
