ace 3 was the tale of two winds. Primarily it was about 7 mph from 255 degrees, pretty much right down the lake. The wind was best on each end and spotty in the middle of the course. Brian Porter and Vincent Porter liked the favorable shift on the port end (John Porter wasn't racing but I happen to know he liked the starboard side- sibling rivalry is alive and well), while Sam Rogers and Art Brereton liked the pressure on the starboard end and the potential of a good shift off the point. Sam Rogers led at the first mark. Both Vincent and Brian jumped the gun at the port end but gybed around the boat to make a quick recovery rounding the first mark in the high teens. From my distant vantage point it looks as though more boats from the port side rounded ahead of boats from the starboard side. For the rest of the race, that would not be the case. NCESA Commodore, Art Brereton TO-101 was second followed by Augie Barkow V-37, Kevin Jewett M-77, and David Strothman M-10. By the next upwind mark most boats had held on to their position but Jim Gluek X-751 moved up from 12th to 5th, the crew of H7, Heidi Rosenbaum and Bryan Biehl , dragged their skipper up from 30th to 11th. The north (right) shore was producing better results and most boats were playing that side of the course for the remainder of the race. Jewett got by Rogers for the win. Following Rogers was Gluek, Will Graves V-47, Rob Evans M-1, and Tom Burton had a steady climb to the top - 18th at the first mark, then 12th and finally 6th at the finish. The race was a 2 ½ windward leeward, the leg times were 16 minutes up, 10 minutes down, 14 up, 10 down and 11 up to the finish in a building breeze. I believe the legs were 1 mile long.

Race 4 followed immediately after race 3 using the same course. It got off at 11:33. Race 3 indicated that the starboard side (north) was the best bet to the first mark, and four Pewaukee boats showed the way - Augie Barkow led, followed by PJ Friend V-11, Will Graves, V-47, and Tobin Tornehl V-511. Tom Burton M-9 was next and Lance Puccio H-11 had his best first mark rounding in 6th place, just ahead of regatta leader Sam Rogers M-42. Augie Barkow V-37 never relinquished his lead and won the race with a comfortable margin. He was followed by Burton M-9 and Friend V-11. Rogers M-42 had his worst race of the regatta finishing all the way down in 4th place. In a day or two check here to see Sam's blog - I am sure he'll write more about the ILYA Championship regatta. There are always 'givers' and 'takers' in a race and this time the takers were: Gluek going from 18th to 12th, to 9th at the finish, Jewett 14-10-6, Rogers 8-5-4. The 'givers' were Evans 28-44-40, Tornehl 4-11-11, Puccio 6-25-25, and Brereton 13-6-11.

The race leg times were: 12 minutes up, 8 down, 11 up, 8 down, and 14 up.
