Paul Reilly and Matt Pistay Take C Nationals Title  
Reilly Gives Emotional Nod to Boober Schneider and Jerry Huse
 

Okoboji was excited with its hosting of the 2017 C Nationals but saddened by the death of Jerry Huse's wife on the eve of the event. Boober Schneider appeared at Sunday's trophy presentation to the delight of many as the fleet recognized the legends of Okoboji. The walls display the history of these two forefathers. As Reilly remarked, the C fleet was sailing almost on hallowed water due to the legacy of such accomplished sailors. 

Reilly and Pistay with third crew Austin Jaessing displayed a consistency all event. The throwout for the winner was a sixth! PRO Mark Prange got three races in on Sunday to give the fleet a throwout. Downwind finishes on races 1 and 2 of the day. Brothers Michael and Cullen Barr got their own shift and took off from the fleet winning the last race of the regatta (really race 2 due to an abandonment) by over a minute. Most impressive. Hometown Riersons took their second race win. Reilly and Pistay solidified the regatta at race 5 with a win. But they continued to sail with an astonishing second place finish in a race they did not need to sail.

Breaking News - US Sailing Sponsors ILYA Champs Saturday Night  
#FINDTHEFUN Saturday Night at the Big Inland
 
PORTSMOUTH, Rhode Island (June 19, 2017) - US Sailing is excited to announce that we will be sponsoring the Saturday night ILYA Championship party on August 19th. "While competition and results are a big part of the regatta, it is just as important to emphasize having a great time off the water with competitors and friends - new and old," notes US Sailing Marketing Manager Robin Dale.  So break out your FAVORITE TROPICAL ATTIRE and get ready to #FINDTHEFUN Saturday night at the Lake Geneva Yacht Club.
 
Let's show the sailing world how ILYA sailors truly value friendship and fun on and off the water. US Sailing has set up an ILYA Instagram Challenge. Starting today and throughout the summer - tag your Instagram sailing photos with #FINDTHEFUN @ussailing and we will pick our favorite the night of the event. Each week between now and then, we will highlight one of our favorites - so start sharing! (Hint: If you're not on Instagram, we still would love to see your photos! They can be emailed to marketing@ussailing.org.)
 
In honor of this sponsorship, we will be offering current ILYA members a custom gift the night of the event if you join or renew with US Sailing anytime between now and the party. Please use this unique link: USSAILING-ILYA and be ready to #FINDTHEFUN with US Sailing at the Inland and all summer long.
