No wind for two days then three races on Saturday made up the second annual Vintage Gold Cup. GEM IX belonged to a mentor of mine, Sir Durward Knowles, when he won gold in the '64 Olympics. GEM IX is now part of the Cayard family and it was extra special to share this year with my third generation Star sailor son. Winning made it that much more special.

Gull Lake Country club has both sailing and golf. Golf was heavily subscribed on Thursday and Friday.

Don Parfet and Jon Vandermolon continue to grow this classic Star event with the addition of 9 boats making a fleet of 21 for this year's Vintage Gold Cup. The Star class is over 100 years old and Vintage Gold Cup is for wooden Stars that are 50+ years old. A big thanks to those two men for their passion and efforts!

The Vintage Gold Cup-Honoring the past!
