Man was that gutwrenching! He totally had Todd beat.Both Haig and Lumley set new course records for Men's Open and Women's Open classes. Haig's unofficial record time was 50 minutes and 19 seconds -- average race speed -- 74 mph. Actually, Aussie Peter Proctor looked like he was going to win -- had Haig by about a ski line length with only a quarter mile from the finishline -- but Proctor crashed making the tough high speed 90-degree left hand turn at the fantail of the Queen Mary for the sprint to the checkered. Haig, pulled by Randy Davis in his 47-foot Nordic Cyclone, just motored by for his ninth overall Catalina victory and seventh in a row. Now the U.S. World Team skiers leave for the World Championships in Belgium this Tuesday!
There sould be a list available tomorrow in one of the local papers. They were taking times and places on the QM today and said they would verify and then print them tomorrow. That was a Catilina press person but they said they will send it to others.Does anyone have the full results list.
The Catalina ski race site doesn't and based on history probably won't for quite awhile.
There are a lot of other classes and places that people are interested in.
Sam was first to the island, by reports we had by phone while on the Queen Mary, but don't forget the head start the 21' boats get. Not sure if they had a full 10 minute head start on the big boats, but if so Sam did not break an hour. Still a great ski ride by an ever improving skier.Also notable -- Billy Dunsmore was driving a 210 Hallett pulling Sam Frey (again the result isn't official, but I think they did it under one-hour -- that's hauling for a 21-footer).
Still no results on the catalina ski race site. Arrgggh hammersThere sould be a list available tomorrow in one of the local papers.
