The 2011 A Scow National Championship, hosted by the Oshkosh Yacht Club officially got underway on Friday with Lake Minnetonka’s Rob Evans on Cosmic Warrior (M-1) issuing a call of complete and total domination. After two races, his impressive 1-1 scoreline puts him ahead by 5 points in a field of 17 deep.
Currently seated in second place is Joel Ronning on Catapult (M-4) and Lake Geneva’s Terry Blanchard on Silverhawk (I-28) sits third overall. The battle for second place is on as Ronning and Blanchard sit dead even with seven points a piece.
The first race of the day presented Evans across the line first, with Ronning and Blanchard finishing respectively. The three-way ownership team of Dennis/Rickman/Verburgt on Lucky (M-2) fought their way to finish fourth, while the Klauser/Haines team aboard Valkyrie (V-999) grabbed fifth.
Evans offered up another bullet to win race two, and not far behind finishing second, was reigning National Champion Tom Freytag on MadCap (I-7) with Chuck Lamphere on White Magic (I-96) having third. Blanchard and Ronning continued to duel for position finishing fourth and fifth.
