1993 Gold Cup World DN Championship

The Gold Cup was sailed at Lake Geneva, Wisconsin on Geneva Lake at Buttons Bay. The surface of the ice was slightly bumpy, but firm snow ice. The first day was characterized by very puffy wind conditions with large shifts, and by the end of the day everyone's mast was either broken, or well tested. (Twenty-three change of equipment forms on the first day were to change broken masts.) The second day the wind got very light the Gold Fleet coasted quietly around the course before the wind stopped for the day. The third scheduled race day the wind was howling again, and only a few people with small sails braved to try to sail. At 1500 hours the race committee cancelled racing and Jeff Kent was our new World Champion!
