Governor’s Cup – Finished Before Dark!

The wind was great yesterday for the 14 boats that participated in the Governor’s Cup.  The wind speed was 9-10 steady most of the day with gusts up to about 20 in certain parts of the lake at different times.  Of course the Reynolds 33 Catamaran took line honors (we saw them finishing when we were just starting our second “lake lap”) but hat’s off to Chuck Robinson who completed the course in his US1 and Gary Oberbeck who completed the course in his SUNFISH!  The trophy will be awarded at the December Membership Meeting (along with Ye Blunder Bucket!)

Here are some of the better photos I got.  If you have a picture you want to submit, use our new Photo Upload Page. If you have multiples, it would be great if you could use a hosting site like or to post them and send a link to
