Default It was an awesome time on the run to Racine!!

We had a great do for our run. Some flat water to start. (portage to Hammond than up to Chicago) Then 1-3' s for the run to Northpoint. Maybe 2-4's for the run up to Racine. Had a great lunch. It was cool meeting and talking to everyone.
Then when we left Racine we were heading straight into 4-6'ers! That was for about 12 miles. It started to lay down a little as we got closer to Northpoint. We and a few others refueled before we left Racine, figuring the added weight might smooth out the ride alittle.
After Northoint the water calmed more and more and we kept going faster.

We ran a little over 160 miles and burned a 160 gallons of Gas But, It was a blast!

Trying to remember, I think we had 4 Cigs, 2-3 Formula's, 2 Active Thunders, 4 Fountain's, a couple of Baja's, a Donzi, a Powerquest, a Super Hawaii, a Checlmate. I lost count somewhere, I think we had 20 boats.

Thanks Candyman for getting this all started.

Pics will follow shortly

This is Check 28. He drove the boat down from South haven in the morning and met the rest of his crew in Hammond. We ran 160 miles, he had to have driven 220 at least.

This is a little far out. We are running to Chicago to pickup more boats. This is about half the group out of Hammond.
This is about the last of the running shots for me, because here the water was 1' or less. It goe steadly worse/better after we left Chicago.

You forgot to mention the Four Winns Liberator . I had to wait up for these guys as soon as it got rough...not. Talk about incentive to buy a bigger boat.
