PRESS RELEASE

SANTANA 20 2001 NATIONAL CLASS CHAMPIONSHIPS
 
Charlie Ogletree grabs the trophy in the Santana 20 2001 Nationals held in Klamath Falls Oregon. Three-time Class Champion Chris Winnard starts off with first place at the beginning of the three day series with Ogletree's consistent finishes keeping him in second. Winnard loses ground on the second day, and even with a bullet on the last day's race, he was not able to recover. Long time class member Charles Witcher takes third. Bruce Golison lost his trophy chances with an OCS at the first race, but demonstrated that he could have been up at the top with his 1-3-1-4-2  finishes in the following races.
 
Winds were steady during most of the racing with no shifts to speak of so the strategy was focused on getting a perfect start and having good boat speed. Overall, great racing, sunny weather and good camaraderie dominated the event. 26 Competitors traveled from as far away as Tulsa, Oklahoma; Vancouver, Canada and Mexico City and in three days of racing there was not a single protest hearing.
Top finishers were: 1-Charlie Ogletree, 2-Chris Winnard, 3-Charles Witcher, 4-Bruce Golison/Steve Washburn, 5-Ken Cardwell, 6-Kerry Poe, 7-Yumio Dornberg, 8-Lance Purdy, 9-Mike Sherlock, 10-Paul Stephens
