2014 Windpower Championships

Friday had fantastic wind and warm weather that made for an epic supercrossing from Windpower on the south end of Lake Winnebago to High Cliff State Park on the north end of the lake (about 30 miles north). South wind made the trip even longer but led to some great stories of sailors working their way that far downwind.

Good 5-15 mph wind and warm weather Saturday were used to full effect in 3 competitive course races, a break for lunch, and then a long distance race (counts 2x).

Course racing start on Saturday

The MOWIND Awards dinner at Sunset on the Water was followed by a huge bonfire at Windpower.

Yep, that’s a boat in the bonfire!

Sunday had 15-35 mph winds so slalom racing was held right off the pier at Sunset. 5 races were completed, with the wind spiking into the 30’s in the 4th race (R9 overall) and into “batten down the hatches” levels during the last race (R10).
