Region 4--J Class & S/B Regatta Report--J Class Final Results update !

Hello ! I will try and report some highlights of what we are calling the "Chicago Classic"- The Region 4 Regatta for J Class and Santa Barbara's.
This is a 4 day regatta, for these two classes.
.
Day One----Wed. Sept 2,2015----J Class
Hot and muggy, tons of sun with light variable winds this morning, then after lunch we moved the course for the great SW breeze that finally settled in.
SEVEN J boats attending,all local, but with various visiting skippers .
twelve races were completed, which was pretty good considering a time out
in the AM to move some buoys, then the after lunch adjustment,along with
moving the scorers tent,etc. The venue is once again Big Bear Lake in Vernon Hills, about 18 miles north of the city. The park is very active,so we had many people stopping by to watch and wonder at the BIG RC boats .
These are the scores at the end of today....
Gerhart Kelter-----------------Ranger # 81----------21 pts.
Gary Mueller-------------------Ranger # 181--------25 pts.
Rick Martin---------------------Whirlwind # 97------43 pts.
Jeff Gros/Doug Rieger-------Shamrock # 184-----56 pts.
Bob Armbruster----------------Shamrock # 119----64 pts.
Ron Schloemer----------------- Ranger # 311--------81 pts.
Ken Young/Rich Mieling------Shamrock # 183----83 pts.
( please note-the 2 last place boats had to retire early, so DNS scores...)
.
Now the fun part-one of our members is a professional photog, and he sent
me these images from today. Enjoy ! and, I'll report in tomorrow .

Region 4 J Class Championship Regatta---Day 2--( J's final)

WOW-we are still in this heat wave- high 80s,some clouds and a beautiful
SW breeze allowing us to set a basic windward/leeward course, with an off-
set by the windward mark, and a gate to leeward. Everyone must have had
their morning coffee because we were ready to go at 9:30 am. One Ranger
had elec. issues last night, and this morning one Shamrock developed a
problem with it's winch, so we ended up with 5 boats completing another 12
races today, and all got 3 throw outs for the regatta. Here's the numbers....
1st....Gerhart Kelter ( Ranger)......................26 pts
2nd...Gary Mueller (Ranger)..........................31 pts
3rd...Rick Martin.( Whirlwind)......................72 pts
4th..J.Gros/D.Rieger (Shamrock)...............102 pts
5th...Bob Armbruster (Shamrock)...............105 pts
6th..Young/Mieling..(Shamrock)...................156 pts
7th...Ron Schloemer (Ranger)........................162 pts.
NO protests heard, fouls settled with 360s,midwest humor in force(d).
As you guys know, the club members that help out at these affairs are the
un-sung heros and our volunteers set the stage for the 7 skippers to show
up and twiddle their thumbs for 2 days-THANKS GUYS ! It's amazing what
some people will do for a sandwich, a drink and a hat.
Next up is a 2 day Region 4 for the S/B Class-stay tuned for that !
Club member Larry K. send me more pics, so enjoy these images.
