The Chicago Yacht Club
Friday Nov. 24 - Sunday Nov. 26

The Timme Angsten moved to its new venue this year. The Monroe Street Harbor provided a much larger sailing area with much steadier winds. The Yacht Club still provided spectators a good view of the race course.

Friday saw a cloudy sky with a bit of drizzle from time to time with temperatures in the upper thirties. The wind was 8 – 12 from the southwest which made conditions a little shifty near the weather mark but kept the waves down. The rotations were made off from the front seawall at the club and a total of four races of 18 minutes in length in each division were completed using a windward-leeward course.

On Saturday the wind changed to the south and increased to between 15 – 22. There was light rain off and on during the day. Because of the wind direction and velocity, changing off from the seawall was not ossible and contestants were swapped between races using inflatable dinghys. There were a number of capsizes. The highlight of the day came when some unknown passer-by on shore apparently called 911 indicating that a boat was in need of assistance. Although the Police had been notified of the event in advance, several safety units appeared on shore including a dive team, and the water patrol came in from the lake charging across the racecourse. It was finally discovered that one Police Watch Captain had not told his replacement that the event was taking place. A total of 8 races in each division were sailed. The traditional dinner-dance was held back at the Belmont Harbor station, and gave the competitors an opportunity to see where the clubhouse barge had been moved and the how docks had been installed in much of the space in which they had sailed last year.

Sunday was bright and sunny after a front passed through. The wind was from the west at 7 – 10 and contained some significant pufts in the tradition of previous Angstens which caused a few capsizes. The last four races were sailed using triangle courses. There was close competition between the Defending Champion Boston College, Eagles, and the Michigan, Wolverines. Michigan needed to make up 8 points at the beginning of the day (2 per race), but fell short gaining only half of those. Therefore, Boston College won the Angsten Bowl again for the third year in a row, and Michigan won the Midwest Fall Championship and the Graduate Officers Trophy. The defending Midwest Fall Champion, Wisconsin was third.
