Sail it Forward Nominee David Sitter with wife Amy
Oshkosh YC - David has served the ILYA as well as Oshkosh for many years. He performs RC work, scoring, leadership, historical gathering. David has served Oshkosh YC in nearly every capacity - regatta chair, board member, head scorer. He is a treasure to the club --- and probably has been the treasurer too. 
 
Bill and Krista Furry
Maxinkuckee, IN - Krista and Bill have served Max for year after year. Avid volunteers, raising avid sailors, they were the first to come to mind as their club proudly brought their names forward. 

'
Leslie Barkow, with husband Dick
Pine Lake YC - Leslie currently serves the ILYA as Trophy Committee Chair. She has served as PLSS Sailing School director, PLYC Commodore, TRAP originator and host for many years, No Tears regatta chair some 20 years apart, Pine's trophy committee and name anything and she has been a part of the action. On top of that, she has led five very independent, talented children to the top of their fleets. 
Dick was emcee for the Sail it Forward luncheon held at Gage. With a marvelous sense of humor: 
  • There's something wrong with you people - you don't know how to say no
  • She's the type of woman husbands question --- organized, efficient, methodical, always working for others ---- what about me?
  • Material for Peter Wattson? I have attorney jokes galore. Next. 
More of our honored volunteers each week. 
Future ILYA Regatta Bids  
Submit before October 31
It's time to consider your 2017-18-19-20 bids for all classes of the ILYA. The ILYA Championships have been awarded through 2020. The rest of the classes have openings. For 2017, the I-20 and Melges 17 classes need hosts for their championships. This can be a combined or separate regatta. Anticipated participation is maximum 30 so your homelake racing, in some cases, could also occur. The Saturday party could be spectacular with your club and the regatta guests. 
 
2018 -  Nearly everything is open as a possibility. The ILYA Champs go to Minnetonka but the X and Opti Champs as well as the above-mentioned 2017 openings and all Invitationals are still open for bid. 
 
2019 - ILYA Championships go to Oshkosh but all else is welcome for bid.
 
2020 - ILYA Championships go to Okoboji but, again, all else is open. 
 
The Board considers many factors when awarding a bid - most importantly, a geographical distribution of the events or a historical rotation which the fleet committee recommends; strong homelake fleets so guaranteed numbers of the fleet will result in a financial success for the club; much less frequently a sparsely populated home lake so fleet promotion can occur; past fine execution of an event. The fleet committees make strong recommendations to the fleets so in addition to submitting a bid to Dave Berg, send your suggestion to the fleet reps:
 
A - Bill Wyman
E - Vincent Porter
C - John Porter
MC - Mark Tesar
Melges 17 - Dave Navin
I -20 - Dave Whealon
X - Ted Rolfs
Opti - Chris Allen
420 - Vice Commodore and Regatta Coordinating David Porter
 
North Lake MC Fall Regatta - 28th Annual   
Hello fellow sailors,
The forecast for this weekend is winds at 10mph, clear skies, and 72degrees. What could be better for a fall weekend of sailing?
well there will also be the great competition, with delicious food and Sprecher Amber on tap when you get off the water. We hope to see not only those who have enjoyed attending in the past, but welcome others who don't know yet what they have been missing. It's a great regatta to sail after finishing out the season on your own lake and pulling the boat. Tell a fellow sailor and bring them along. We have a great clubhouse, ample trailer parking, and plenty of help to make launching easy. 
Hope to see you this weekend.
Steady Breezes,
Charles Luebke

George Dorn Results
 Mike Gehl of Pine took home top honors from the fall MC Regatta at Beulah. The four-race lowkey event brought a second reason for Pine to smile this weekend. 

Nancy Neal Norris Beulah Challenge  
It's another great year on Beulah for the C fleet
We celebrate on Beulah with an end-of-year event in memory of Nancy Neal Norris. The Beulah Challenge originated with skippers loaning their boats (although the owner skippered) for a free youth event. Many X boaters took advantage of this great event. But, wouldn't you know!! Sailors are competitive and soon the skippers were skipping again but the YOUTH ARE STILL FREE. The Beulah sailors donate heavily to allow us to provide a free regatta for the under 25 crowd. So loan your boat, come with a youth or encourage your next year's X to C boater to buy a used boat (Your spouse really needs a Christmas idea and needs the resale money to begin the Melges negotiation) and come on over. Friday night launch and food, Mexican on Saturday, Pancake Breakfast donated by the Sullivan family on Sunday morning and Norris, Norris, Norris touches everywhere. The poster above is the second annual NNN poster. The trophy will feature a sculpture of NNN riding the boards. Click here to register or donate to the youth.
