Via Western Region Commodore Daniel Hearn:

DN Sailors:

Lake Pepin is being sailed today as a possible venue for the Western Region Championships to take place this weekend, Jan. 5-6.  I will have a full ice report with video and pictures by late afternoon.  At this point, no other good possibilities have been identified, though anything else served up will still be considered.  Send any other reports ASAP.  Recent snow events have taken out, for now, the lakes that were previously frozen.  Many lakes in the southern portion of our region remain open, however, so more possibilities with the next cold weather/calm winds stretch.  I hope to make a final call by end of day today.  Stay tuned, and think ice!

Western Region Championship Called ON for Jan 5-6 @ Lake Pepin
by Deb Whitehorse





DN Sailors:

It’s On!

The Western Regional Championships are confirmed for this weekend, Jan. 5-6 on Lake Pepin in Lake City, Minnesota.

Conditions

The ice surface is smooth to pebbly, rated a 7+ from two ranked/experienced DN racers who sailed it today. (See attached photos). Ice thickness is reported to be 8”. Weather forecast is calling for above freezing temperatures—sunny and high of 46 degrees on Saturday; cloudy with high of 39 degrees Sunday. Wind forecast for Saturday is 8 mph until 1:00 p.m., then starting to diminish. Sunday winds 8-10 mph throughout the racing day.

Let’s Get Our Money’s Worth

Note that we have a 9-race format scheduled and we will be working hard to be as efficient as possible in order to make that happen. We have the option to start a race as late as 3:00 p.m., but we would prefer to avoid that in consideration of our longer distance travelers. Please be ready to help out the Race Committee if assistance is requested. If rules allow, I would like to move the start time Saturday up ˝-hour to 10:00 a.m. Please plan accordingly.

Please email Deb Whitehorse secretary.idniyra@gmail.com  to confirm your attendance and to provide your fleet preference—Gold or Silver. (Depending on numbers, there may be one or two fleets, though prizes will be awarded for two fleets).

Launch
Roschen Park. Drive on if you so choose, but be aware this is a frozen section of a river.

Many thanks to Mike Miller and Tommy Meyer for scouting this sheet today. And to all others who provided information on other potential venues.

See you there!
