2009 Winnebago SuperCrossing ( a race directors view)

The weekend started early with Jeff Knutsen ( http://www.a-aexteriors.com/ ) sponsoring and running the 2009 Winnebago SuperCrossing on Friday the 18th.  10 racers left Roosevelt County Park and headed north (upwind) to Wendt’s Supper Club located half way to Oshkosh on the west side of the lake.  It’s just west of the island.  Six of the ten who started made it all the way to Wendt’s, the longboarders prevailed in these conditions and the shortboarders came up short.  Magnus Zanmueller (Beaver Dam, Wi.) was first, very closely followed by Del Carpenter (Iowa) and then Dan Thornton (Fond du Lac) in third.  Jeff treated the racers with a beverage at the bar and then they set sail for the return race.  The wind picked up and formed white caps right after the start to provide a fun and fast downwind ride back to Wind Power.  Jim Edlebeck (Muskego, Wi.) took honors with Jim Magnuson (Beaver Dam) second and Magnus Zanmueller third.  As usual Jeff provide a fun time for all considering the light forecast.  The next SuperCrossing is due for epic conditions, providing a true crossing from the south end of the lake, 28 miles to the north end.  Niles Book holds the claim to fame for sailing to the north end and back during a Crossing a number of years ago.
