Too Klos, a 19-foot Lightning class sailboat skippered by Pete Orlebeke of Fond du Lac, rounds the windward mark and sets off downwind with wife Kimberly and daughter Kayley setting the spinnaker during the fifth of six races of the annual Evans Regatta hosted last weekend at Windjammers Sailing Club in Suamico. Two dozen sailors from around the Midwest competed in the two-day event, which also served as the Midwest District Regatta for the International Lightning Class Association. The top three finishers–Todd Wake of Sheboygan, Bill Faude of Chicago and Craig Pomeroy of Sturgeon Bay–qualified for the weeklong North American Championship scheduled for August 8-14 on Lake Erie.
