Cathy Firmbach 2023 DN World Championship Photos Available


Via 2023 DN Worlds & North American Event Photographer Cathy Firmbach:

Thanks for your patience! My online store is now open with a gallery for the 2023 DN World Championship. The first set of images are uploaded and they will continue to be uploaded over the next few days. The North American Championship images will follow in a new gallery.

Each image has the sail number(s) as a keyword (ie, us46 ) to make searching for your boat easy. You will find the search bar in the top right corner.
THANKS very much for your support! Without it, I would not be able to continue to be out there with you.
Hope to see you on the ice soon! See the gallery here.

2023 DN NA RESULTS
Matt Struble has been unstoppable this week after his 2023 Worlds win. He took top honors at the 2023 DN North American Championship on Lake Kegonsa in Madison, Wisconsin, on January 27, 2023. It’s his fifth North American Championship. Congratulations to long-time Minnesota DNer Tom Meyer on his Silver fleet win.

Congratulations to all those competitors who hung tough and waited for PRO Pat Heppert to find the right window to complete the regatta on Friday with a race in Gold and Silver. Paul Goodwin US46 said the heavy air, blowing, snowy conditions reminded him of the classic iceboat documentary, Black Ice. Spectators and the Race Committee witnessed some of the most exciting races of the week on Friday. There will be many stories told about that day.

There are many people that need to be acknowledged for their part in bringing the Worlds and North Americans across the finish line. We’ll get to the heartfelt thankyous in a separate post.
