Dave Villwock and U-1 Spirit of Qatar win the Governor’s Cup at Madison, 2012. At the start-up buoy, it was Steve David grabbing lane one. At the start line, however, it was Dave Villwock in lane two getting across the line first. Villwock hit a hole in the first turn and lost some speed, but managed to hold off David.
At the end of lap one, Villwock had nearly a roostertail lead on David. Meanwhile, Kip Brown‘s U-17 died in the first turn, but managed to restart. JW Myers was penalized a lap for hitting a buoy. A 5-lap final on a 2-mile course means some really rough water after a couple of times around the course and there was lots of bouncing, especially with the winds at the front of a second wave of bad weather on the horizon.
Order of Finish in Finals:
1. U-1 Spirit of Qatar – Dave Villwock
2. U-6 Oh Boy! Oberto – Steve David
3. U-88 Degree Men – Scott Liddycoat
4. U-17 Red Dot – Kip Brown
5. U-11 JW Myers (Started as Trailer Boat)
