DIMENSION-POLYANT one of the presenting sponsors
With an impressive nine points (3-1-1-3-1), the Silverhawk takes home the championship title. Terry Blanchard's Geneva boat is pictured here with Maya and Finn Burdick and Chapman Petersen. From left to right (excluding the future champions) Andy Burdick, Ben Porter, Molly Forbes, Terry Blanchard, Peter Keck, Jim Petersen and Joe Kutschenreuter. This team has been together for years. The new addition this season was mainsheet trimmer Kutsch who sails for UW. He brought new seventh Molly Forbes from Calhoun who also is his UW crew. The children bring their own prowess - Chapman has begun traveling to Opti events this season and is the runnerup of the Pram Power. Maya and Finn spent time on the MC racecourse sailing - eating candy and earning ice cream - in other words, working their dad earlier in the week. This is the second time the Blanchard/Burdick team has won the Inland.
Seond place is Geneva's Tom Freytag. "T" has also used the same team members for several years. The Madcap never fell below second place all regatta. John Gluek,
DIMENSION-POLYANT was a member of his sailing crew. Congratulations!
