Defending Madison Regatta Champion Dave Villwock was happy with the performance of his newly named and numbered U-96 Spirit of Qatar, in spite of qualifying second to Steve David in the U-1 Oh Boy Oberto.
Villwock recorded a 153.152 to David’s 154.575. in 2009, Villwock was top qualifier and ran the table in heat racing, including the championship final.
“Over all we had a good day,” said Villwock.” We had some first day electrical issues that kept us from running more laps but, in the 11th hour, we pulled a rabbit out of the hat. The boat ride is great and I think we’ll race even better than we qualified. It should be a good weekend.”
