1997 Gold Cup World DN Championship

January 14, 1997 to January 17, 1997

The 1997 Gold Cup regatta was held on Lake St. Clair in Michigan January 14 through 17. The event was originally scheduled to be sailed on Green Lake in Wisconsin. Snow accumulation throughout the country made it difficult to select a new site. Due to extremely cold temperatures in the area, a new piece of ice formed on Anchor bay and it became the only sail-able site in North America. There was an unfortunate start to racing when the all-terrain vehicle and trailer carrying the race committee went through the ice. Quick response from the people in the area resulted in a safe rescue with no injuries. Five races were held for Gold fleet with four races each held for Silver and Bronze, With 147 sailors participating, Karol Jablonski won his fourth Gold Cup!
