2018 Walleye Regatta Results

Spring is finally here and it’s time for Mowind Racing! We had another great Walleye Regatta this weekend. Thanks to Kevin, Andy, Ben, and the whole crew at Windpower for setting up everything for the races. And special thanks to spectacular volunteers “Low Boom” Larry Reed and Mary Deuster on Race Committee and with anything else that needed to get done.

2017 Windpower Championships

The 2017 Windpower Championships were blessed with warm weather (well, almost too warm at 90+ degrees) and near perfect raceboard conditions. Saturday had 6 races in 5-10+ mph wind, and Sunday had 4 more races in 5-15 mph wind. The conditions were good enough that Alex Monroe (US292) made it around the course in three of the races on a hydrofoil.

Thank you to all of the race organizers and to Windpower Surf Shop for hosting.

Saturday evening the whole crew got together at the Sunset On the Water Bar & Grill for dinner and the 2017 Mowind Race Series awards. This marked the end of the 2017 Race Series and the beginning of the 2018 Race Series. Let’s enjoy the fall winds, winter sailing (some on ice/snow, maybe some nice vacations to warmer climates), and then planning to do it again next year!

2017 MOWIND Race Series Awards

The 2017 Mowind Race Series award banquet was held last Saturday evening during the Windpower Championships. Etched mugs and wine glasses were presented to the top performers in each division. Also, a Locosys GW-60 gps watch was raffled off and Randy Howell was the lucky winner. This raffle raised $392 for Mowind! Many thanks to all of the people that bought tickets throughout the season, and especially to Craig Bergh for donating the watch. Another special thanks goes out to Tom Stokes for donating $500 to Mowind earlier this summer. Finally, thank you to all the racers and organizers that helped make the 2017 Race Series a success. Can’t wait to do it again next year!
