2016 Queens Cup

July 1, 2016   Milwaukee, Wisconsin     J105 Fleet 5 Chicago organized J105 One Design Racing in the 2016 South Shore Yacht Club Queens Cup Race.   10 foot waves and 30 knots of wind greeted the sailors early in the morning prior to the start.   As the day progressed, winds settled to 15 knots at the 3:55 pm start of this 79 NM race across Lake Michigan to St. Joseph, MI.  Winds slowly diminished as the night race across the lake progressed - which created a race lasting approximately 24 hours for the J105 Fleet.  

Competing in the event were 9 J105s - Smokin' J, Esprit d'Ecosse, Global Nomads, Buzz, The Asylum, Attitude, Striking, Phantom, and Peregrine.  Angry Sloth was entered, but unable to compete.  

Winners of the event:  1st Place - Buzz  2nd Place - Attitude   3rd Place - Peregrine .  Full results here A big thank you to J105 Queens Cup Race Chairman Mike Ludtke whom organized a J105 Party in Milwaukee prior to the event and did a great job as J105 RC.   Congratulations to all J105 competitors and award winners.
