MARQUETTE - A gusty evening with winds blowing out of the south at 15 to 20 mph proved to make an exciting weekly race for Ensign sailboats on Lake Superior in Marquette's Lower Harbor area.

Crews completed a trio of circuits, meaning three downwind and just as many into the wind all done in less than an hour.

The winning vessel was Eh? piloted by Eric Seaborg, while runner-up Jason Beecher aboard Amazein' Blue did well enough to remain in first place in the season standings.
