1985 Gold Cup World DN Championship

The Gold Cup was scheduled for Green Lake, WI, USA. Snow dictated a move to Tawas City, MI. Light wind, cold weather and ultimately more snow sent the regatta to Barnegat Bay, NJ. The first two days at Barnegat saw 40 mph winds. FINALLY on Sunday the regatta was sailed in near perfect conditions. The course was huge; the wind was 12- 18mph; the ice was hard flat salt ice with a pebbly surface. Five races in each fleet were sailed without problems. A perfect ending to a difficult regatta.
