1975 US Nationals Program - Green Lake

Thursday, 30 August 2018 07:28

Green Lake, Winsconsin, August 16-22, 1975

This was a US Nationals with 129 Snipes

by Lee Griffith

Three weeks before this year's Green Lake Nationals I was moving some stacks of old magazines and I looked down and there was the Program from the 1975 Green Lake Nationals!! I didn't even remember that I had it, just sheer coincidence! I guess I spent 50 cents on it.
 
I took it to the regatta and it was fun to page through it. We found out that the Heidel House Honey's (last page advertisement) are no longer performing (the pub burned down), and this year's organizers didn't have Speed Queen washing machines as one of the full page advertisers.

Green Lake, WI, August 26, 2018

Report by Art Rousmaniere

Augie Diaz and Julia Melton topped a small but very competitive fleet at the 2018 edition of the US Nationals held on pristine Green Lake Wisconsin on August 23-26. The classic adage "snooze, you lose" was in play all week as all of the races were hotly contested to the end with no team winning more than one race and multiple finishes having 4-5 of the front-runners finishing overlapped or within seconds of each other.
Day one brought 80 degrees, cloudless skies and moderate building conditions of 6-10 knots. Being a weekday and late in the vacation season meant the we had all the lake to ourselves. Doug Hart with Diego Escobar eeked out a 4-way overlap to take race 1. Art Rousmaniere with Lily Lichtenstein crossed the finish less a mere few boat lengths ahead of Diaz/Melton then Jim Bowers / Julia Rabin to claim race 2. Diaz / Melton finished the day by winning the 3rd race of the day, once again in a close finish.

Report by Carol Cronin

“Where is the opening to the real sailing area?” asked the Colombian team when they first sailed out onto Upper Mystic Lake. It was a valid question; lined up bow to stern, the fifty-three Snipes sailing in the 2017 Nationals would have almost touched trees on either side of the tiny lake. But despite a micro-sailing area with mystical sailing conditions, the regatta was a great success—thanks to a well-organized team of volunteers at the Winchester and Medford Boat Clubs, and a serious emphasis on Serious Fun.

US Nationals - Day 3

Winchester, August 23, 2017. From Carol Cronin

For those of you watching from afar and waiting for results, I can't even tell you what our own finishes were today... but we had four races in both the Heinzerling and Wells. All I can tell you is that several lake sailors (and a few other teams too) are making it look easier than it is. 5-12 knots of shifty, puffy lake breeze with a very short course and tight fleet made for constant challenges. 2 days to go!

4 races today on Mystic Lake: we finished the Crosby qualifying series (the first one in several years) and then sailed the first race of the Heinzerling (32 boat championship) and Wells consolation series. With an approaching front the wind built all afternoon, making for a zesty final race.

US Nationals - Day 1

Tuesday, 22 August 2017 07:23

Winchester, August 21, 2017. A classic one-race first day on Mystic Lake to start the 2017 Snipe Nationals. With 53 boats, the fleets are split for the 4 race Crosby qualifying series. After a long unsuccessful wait for the first group, the second group was sent out for some waiting of their own... and instead lucked into enough breeze for a race. After another long wait for the first group, they too got a race off.

1. Jim Bowers & Julia Rabin, 1

3. Andrew Pimentel & Sandra Tartaglino, 2
