Richardson Update:
With one week left before the big event, weigh in and practice sessions start Thursday Oct 11, a few updates for the record.

First, Landon Gardner has withdrawn from competition. As of yesterday a replacement for his slot has been filled by Peter Holz of the Chicago Yacht Club and will sail for LMSRF. Sill in the mix is Robert Hughes who is in scramble mode looking for crew. If he is successful, there will be twelve great teams competing in the 100th Richardson Trophy regatta.

Long range weather reports indicate fair and good fall weather. This is being reported today with several inches of snow falling in northern Minnesota. A lot of remember four years ago when the Richardson was being held at Wayzata Yacht Club on Lake Minnetonka.

Stop back for final updates prior to the actual event.

Okay, thanks for checking back in for the latest news on 2012 Richardson Trophy Regatta. With Robert Hughes unsuccessful in securing a competitive team, there will be a total of 11 teams competing for this year's 100th anniversary regatta. The list of competitors is below:

Hans Pusch LMSRF
Don Wilson LMSRF
Lars Hansen LSYA
Sam Rogers LSYA
Ben Marden LMSRF
Terry McLaughlin LYRA
David Niemann LMSRF
Michael Whitford LMSRF
Nathan Hollerbach
Steve Lowery LMSRF
Peter Holz LMSRF

With the variety of skippers and the crews they have assembled, this should be a very interesting competition. It might indeed be the most exciting in many years. This is all most fitting in that in was 100 years ago that the first Richardson Trophy Regatta was hosted by the Chicago Yacht Club. At that time Norman Gooderham was the first victor racing for the Royal Canadian Yacht Club and LYRA. See http://yrugl.org/Winners.htm for past winners.

Weather predictions are for fair fall conditions for Friday and Saturday. This should be ideal for a double RR format. Sunday might see a change with some stormy and windy conditions predicted.

Wilson wins the 100th Richardson Trophy Regatta. Under very stressful weather conditions, Wilson was able to pull out a winning performance in this year's Richardson held at CMRC. With tornado warnings and all, it was a spectacular finish to a best fought race over three days of competition. Congratulations to Don Wilson on his win and the second in a row.

The following article and recap of the 2012 Richardson Trophy Regatta was written by Gary Hendrickson. Gary has been the YRUGL VP representing LMSRF for many years. He is responsible in part for the reinmergence of the match race dominance of that Lake Association.
