The ice and wind converged in just the right quantities on the last day of the US Nationals on Lake Senachwine in Putnam, Illinois. Ron Sherry of Clinton Township, Michigan, found his gear and took three bullets, again showing why he is a five-time world champion, 14-time North American champion, and three-time European DN champion. The Gold fleet competition was tough, and everyone took notice of the Canadians as their training efforts paid off, with 3 of them in the top ten. Karen Binder of Bristol, Rhode Island, lined up in the one-block five times and dominated the Silver fleet. Thanks to the Race Committee and competitors who hung tough and waited for the right venue to come in. Stay tuned for more updates and links to photo galleries.
