Saturday and Sunday saw sailing in the 46th Wallwork Regatta on Lake Pelican  near Detroit Lakes, Minnesota.   There were 9 C scows competing in that division with several sailors from Lake Minnetonka which made for very competitive sailing.

Saturday races started slow with the breeze finally filling and one race was completed before lunch.  Ben Burgum and crew James Burgum won the first race.  Afternoon races had to be cancelled as the wind diminished.  Saturday evening the Pelican Lake Yacht club hosted a wonderful dinner on the shores of the lake complete with live music and even some tired sailors dancing.

Sunday the breeze built and two races were completed while dodging a thunderstorm. Tim Krech, Lake Minnetonka, and crew Katie Burgum and Abby Burgum won the first race and Jason Ostbye, Lake Minnetonka, and crew Hans Dickel won the second race.  Tim Krech was the over all winner of the regatta in the C Scow Division.
