Beulah X fleet goes to Quads, takes bullets, wins Volleyball

The Beulah X fleet travelled up the road to Nagawicka for the Quad Lakes regatta Monday and Tuesday.  Brooke and Ryan Komas had a furious last-beat rally to take the last race on day one, and John Barr and Gabe DiBiase went big right the first beat and took a commanding lead and led the fleet around the course in very convincing fashion to take the last bullet of the event on Tuesday!  Both finished in the top 5, and Beulah also brought back home the coveted Quad Lakes volleyball trophy!

MC drops the HAMMER

Local hero Mary Claire Kiernan and her crew, Elizabeth Pemberton, competed in Club 420s at the 2013 U.S. Junior Women's Double handed Championship for the Ida Lewis Trophy, competing with 38 of the nation's top junior women sailors. After two days of on the water clinics instructed by USA National coaches, the ladies completed a total of eight races over the course of three days.  On the final morning they really put it in gear with a race win and a deuce to get close and finished the event tied for fourth!  Alas the tiebreaker went against them and so they were officially fifth.  Awesome results on the national stage!  MC is off to Tufts in the fall to continue her sailing career.

X fleet travels to Pine for TRAP

The Beulah X fleet spent the week dodging raindrops and thunderstorms while getting covered with mud and waiting for wind, and also did some sailing.  In the Senior edition, Mary and Annie Berg led the charge with a consistent series and overall 3rd place finish, while Brooke and Ryan Komas took a race win and 6th overall.  They left and the Juniors came on, and it was really a battle with the weather - at Pine from noon Wednesday through the end of the Thursday and the only completed races were three on Thursday morning.  Caroline and Kendall were the top Beulah boat as they brought the 217 home in 5th overall, followed closely by Brigit and John Berg riding the 66 to 7th and Patrick and Jonah on the 77 rounding out the Beulah money-winners in 9th.  Back to Beulah for some fleet racing, and then off to Nagawicka for Quads!

Not to be outdone, his dad Kent was third overall with Mike Greeson as crew. Kent was the top master. He finished the event after the throwouts with no race below 10th. It was a great event with Beulah the largest represented fleet. Beulah had sailors on the water and RC on the course. Frank Davenport and Ronnie Jarecki placed 15th. The Davenport brothers had one close race following each other in as high as 3rd and 4th for most of the race.

Frank Davenport was awarded the Road Warrior award indicating the highest finishing skipper attending the most regattas.

Kevin will be in Froedtert Hospital for an estimated six weeks. You can follow his progress on  a website called the Caring Bridge where Molly posts each night and also has posted a calendar for requested assistance. Their many friends have rapidly volunteered for all the June tasks.
