A fleet of nearly 100 boats gathered for a sprint of 30.0nm from Chicago to Waukegan, IL. The first fleet started in a light easterly of 5-6 knots, but the subsequent starts were in nearly calm breeze. After three fleets could not fully clear the starting line, the Chicago Yacht Club’s Race Committee was forced to postpone the starts of the remaining fleets. Subsequently, as the next set of classes took off in the building breeze, it was clear the last class to start was going to have the greatest handicap advantage overall. The always formidable J/111 fleet on Lake Michigan made their mark in PHRF 2 Class with a near sweep: with John Kalanik’s PURA VIDA winning, Tom Dickson’s WARLOCK second by just 50 seconds, and Tom McIntosh’s MISTY in fourth place.
