X Fleet - the MOST Exciting News  
ILYA Foundation at Work
TWO new X fleets this year! Both Mendota and Browns Lake will see X boats on their waters for the first time in several decades! Mendota is the proud owner of three X boats to qualify for ILYA Foundation funds. The boats have all arrived as of today; sails from Lake Beulah and it's simply the best news imaginable. The Madison Youth Sailing Foundation has supported Optis for several years now. We saw 5-7 sailors traveling to regattas last year. Now the next step - X boats. Both bodies of water on Madison are picturesque and, although they don't claim it, the quietest waters of the Inland. They are beautiful lakes just waiting for more youth to be introduced to the sport. Congrats to the leaders of the MYSF - Patrick Heaney, Brian Anderson, Jamie Hanson and Justin Segersten - who worked feverishly to achieve this goal in one season. 
Browns Lake is a small C-scow lake in Burlington, WI. Their youth program has consisted of Optis over the years but the next step has not been X boats in the past 30 years. And here they are with their first purchase! It is a single boat who will train either at Beulah or Geneva but it is a great start to the development of a fleet! Congrats to the Tim Lynch family on your purchase. 
The ILYA Foundation has been led by Past Commodore Rick Trester for the past two years. It was his vision to grow new youth fleets for the ILYA following our path of Opti to X to HS to college sailing to SCOW! Last year's initiative resulted in a marvelous growth in the White Bear, MN X fleet. They traveled to Gull Lake for the ILYA X Championships and brighter smiles were not seen sailing around the course.

MC Nationals - Pewaukee  
June 25-28

The Pewaukee Yacht Club was founded in 1896 and has hosted countless large regattas over the past and we pride ourselves on running great regattas.  Our club is easy to get to, sail in and out of, the wind is usually fantastic and our volunteers love showing our sailors a great time with wonderful food, drinks and good stories at the bar!  Just last summer we hosted the MC ILYA at our club with over 80 boats.  We are thrilled to be hosting the MC Nationals again this summer and expect anywhere between 70-100 boats on our lake! 

Pewaukee is not only known for our great sailing but also our great parties.  Friday Night we will have an "After Sailing Party" with live music on the deck, a free keg of beer and heavy appetizers.  Then Saturday night the PYC will host RIB NIGHT with Lou Morgan's World Famous BBQ Ribs. 

Register by June 1st to get a FREE REGATTA T-SHIRT and save $25 in registration fees by registering early.  To register online or for more details, NOR and housing information go to MC Nationals 2015 at .

This year is the 50th E Scow Blue Chip Regatta hosted by the Pewaukee Yacht Club in Wisconsin. Each year, an elite sailor is invited as a special guest that is kept a mystery until just before the event. We provide the sailboat and the crew. To celebrate the 50th regatta, we are inviting 20-30 past mystery guests & honorary class legends back to compete against each other in this all-star event.

College Nationals  
Newport, RI
Parents of this year's collegiate nationals participants get a special treat as the women's, co-eds and team racing championships are contested in the most beautiful sailing area in the nation. Newport will be recovering from the Volvo Race stopover. Ft. Adam's State Park affords magnificent views of the city while enjoying the nation's best young sailors. 

This year's format is new. All teams who qualified as semifinalists will travel to Newport for two days of qualifying before the finals begin in Women's and Co-eds. All racing in a 12 day span May 25th to June 5th. Schools have qualified separately for the three events. Some few teams qualify for all three but a team may have participants in team racing and/or womens which serve as bookends to the event. There's plenty of time to view the mansions and marine-themed shops and attractions. 

To see if your sailor's team is competing check  www.collegesailing.org. For individual names of participating sailors, you will have to wait until scores begin to appear.
