Heat 2C Results:
  1. U-1 Dave Villwock
    ONE LAP PENALTY - JUMPED THE GUN
  2. U-37 J. Michael Kelly
    ONE LAP PENALTY - JUMPED THE GUN

    DNS.  U-13 Cal Phipps
The U-13 has been fighting engine problems all weekend and it continued into Heat 2C.  The boat was in the water, but the fire kept going out and Phipps couldn't make it to the start.

Meanwhile, Kelly flew past Villwock at the score up buoy and JMK moved into lane one.  They were side by side at the start line of the now two-boat race.  Coming out of the first turn, Villwock was just a bit ahead on the outside, but Kelly made a tight turn and was right on his hip.

Villwock's top end speed put him out front at the end of lap one with Kelly just behind.  The U-1 flew out to about a roostertail lead on the backstretch of lap two and started to stretch it out.  By the end, Villwock had about a half a course lead as the boats settled in.
Turns out both boats jumped the gun at the start of the race and had to take an extra lap.
