Bob Rippel wins the Brodie Cup on Windigo for the
third time in four years in the 31st running of the Ti
Race. Twenty-four boats on the starting line this year.
A light and unpredictable breeze gave boats on the heavily
favored boat-end of the line the advantage; the breeze
filled in from the west by late morning and throughout
the afternoon, resulting in breeze in the teens with gusts
over 20. With the wind out of the west it was a fast reaching
race, all the boats were in by 10 pm.
