Chicago Sailor John Podmajersky Wins Lake Erie Championship
John Podmajersky and his Mumm 30 Illusion won the Lake Erie Championship for the Mumm 30 Class held July 29, 30, and 31 and hosted by Lakeside Yacht Club in Cleveland, Ohio.
The event delivered challenging conditions with the 11 races being run in light oscillating breezes which put a premium on boat speed, the three day event saw winds from 4-13 knots with the majority of racing taking place in the 6-9 knot range.
Illusion came out on top after ending the first day of the event in 3rd place. The fleet consisted of the some of the toughest competitors on the Great Lakes as the top spot shifted each day of the event and the point spread for the top 5 boats remained tight throughout the regatta.
Illusion is powered by Ullman Skelley Sails of Havre de Grace Maryland and her Chicago and Chesapeake Bay crew consists of Max Skelley and Ron Weed Jr. of Ullman Skelley Sails, Scott Kulp, Nan Walker, Tim Fetsch, Cynthia West and John Podmajersky.

The defending champions of US SAILING’s U.S. Independence Cup/North American Challenge Cup (IC/NACC), one of the premier disabled sailing regattas in the country, had reason to celebrate after winning the event once again. For doublehanded sailors Karen Mitchell (Deerfield Beach, FL.) and Kerry Gruson (Miami, FL), it was their third consecutive time winning the Championship, sailed in Freedom 20s. For US Disabled Sailing Team-member Nick Scandone (Fountain Valley, CA), it was only his second time competing in the event and his second victory in the singlehanded event, sailed in the 2.4mR. The Championship was hosted by Chicago Yacht Club, where it will be held again next year.
In the doublehanded fleet, racing was close throughout the three-day regatta. Karen Mitchell and Kerry Gruson took the lead on the second day and managed to hold on to it for the remainder of the event. With six points total, the winners finished 12 points ahead of second-place finishers Bob Jones (Issaquah, WA) and Ken Kelly (Victoria, BC). In the singlehanded 2.4mR fleet, Nick Scandone came prepared to win, taking the lead on day one and never relinquishing it. Fellow US Disabled Sailing Team-member Rick Doerr (Clifton, NJ) finished eight points behind Scandone.

“The racing in the gold fleets of both classes was highly competitive this year,” said Betsy Alison (Newport, R.I.), coach of the US Disabled Sailing Team and clinic instructor at the U.S. Independence Cup. “I think this was the strongest competition we’ve seen at this event,” she added.
With their third consecutive win of the U.S. Independence Cup, Mitchell and Gruson enter the history books of US SAILING. This is the first time in the history of the event, held annually since 1990, that a team has won the event for three consecutive years. Robie Pierce (Newport, R.I.) has won the singlehanded event three times, but not in consecutive years.
By winning the U.S. Independence Cup, Californian Nick Scandone continues what has been a very successful year thus far. He started 2005 with a third place finish at US SAILING’s Rolex Miami OCR in the 2.4mR, he was the top U.S. finisher in the event. He then finished fourth at the Disabled Midwinters and the combined finishes at both events put him in first place for the US Disabled Sailing Team in the 2.4mR. The U.S. Independence Cup served as great preparation for Scandone, who leaves for Denmark later this month to compete in the IFDS Disabled Sailing World Championship. In September, Scandone will travel to Italy to compete in the 2.4mR Open World Championship.
