The 85th challenge for the Queen's Cup Trophy took place last weekend on Lake Michigan. This overnight race across Lake Michigan departs from Milwaukee, WI for South Haven, MI. Both Milwaukee's South Shore Yacht Club and the South Haven Yacht Club provided a great experience for both pre and post-race festivities. The race is popular with J/Teams on Lake Michigan. Here is the breakdown by division.

J/111 Class

Winning by just 5 minutes was Blane Shea's STRIKING BACK. Second was George Golder's TERRIER, followed by Colin & Mark Caliban's NO QUARTER in the third position. Rounding out the top five were Brad & Ian Faber's UTAH and Jeff Schaeffer's SHMOKIN JOE, in fourth and fifth, respectively.

PHRF 1 Division

Nine boats competed in this division of large gold-plated speedsters. Ending up in fifth place was Bill Schanen's J/145 MAIN STREET.

PHRF 2 Division

Winning this eight-boat division was Doug Evans's J/122 ELBOW ROOM. It seems that this ex-J/109 Chicago Mackinac Race-winning team has not lost their touch after "upgrading" to the much bigger J/122!

Doublehanded Division

This shorthanded division featured ten teams of all stripes and sizes! Taking the silver medal was Ron Otto's J/110 TAKEDOWN 2. Just minutes behind them on corrected was Justin Acker's J/88 MCQUEEN.
