Bob Hickok Earns Hoosier Challenge Cup

Thanks to Marcus Rogers for this report: The Highlander Class many years ago had a Hoosier Challenge Cup. It was created by Tim Hollingsworth at Eagle Creek Sailing Club and Tom Kling at Indianapolis Sailing Club(ISC). It was a Cup that named an overall club as winner, and a first, second and third for individual boats. It also used existing regattas and was intended to promote travel between clubs. It only succeeded because both clubs had boats that traveled to the other club for each other’s regattas. The communication was there so that both clubs didn’t have conflicting schedules. In the day, this was a very successful venture. Now, we do the same thing, but we use the J/24, and it has been beneficial to both clubs. For 2018, there were four regattas in which these clubs competed: the Mayor’s Cup (May 19/20 at ECSC), the Geist Guzzler (June 9/10 at ISC), Governor’s Cup (September 15/16 at ECSC) and the Keelover (September 29/30 at ISC). The winner for this year’s Championship belongs to Bob Hickok, and for the third year in a row, Eagle Creek was the overall winner. Bob took first in the Geist Guzzler, first at the Keelover, third in the Mayor’s Cup and third in the Governor’s Cup. Nicely done Bob!
