ilyaburgeeThe Inland Lake Yachting Association is proud of its strong tradition of supporting youth sailing.  Many of our young sailors have used experience gained on our Inland Lakes to enjoy the benefits of collegiate sailing.  They will be showcased this spring on Lake Mendota.

The University of Wisconsin Badger Sailing Team is hosting the 2010 Inter-Collegiate Sailing Association (ICSA) National Championships.  The event lasts ten days starting on May 25th and ending on June 3rd, and includes Women's, Team Racing, and Coed events.  With support and cooperation from the Hoofer Sailing Club, this event will take place on Lake Mendota just off the Memorial Union on the UW campus.  The Badger Sailors last hosted this prestigious competition in 1996.Capitol

As the premier event in collegiate sailing, the ICSA Nationals will attract around three hundred of the nation's top college sailors.  We feel honored to have the opportunity to host this event here in Madison, and look forward to offering the college and national sailing community an unforgettable experience.

The Wisconsin Sailing Team is part of the Hoofers Sailing Club.  Hoofers is part of the Wisconsin Union and UW-Madison.  It is an outdoor recreational organization with 6 clubs including Sailing, SCUBA, Ski / Snowboarding, Riding, Outing and Mountaineering. 

The sailing club was started in 1939 and was wildly popular from the beginning with 450 students.  Members were either students or instructors; as soon as a student passed the required tests, they began teaching others how to sail.  The Union Council approved $300 for the construction of a Sailing Club pier at this time. 

In 1952, the Sailing Club purchased two fiberglass Tech Dinghys.  These dinghys were designed by a retired MIT professor (hence their name).  Eventually all the UW's Tech Dinghys were custom-made to Commodore Peter Harken's specifications and called "Badger Techs".   The UW Badger Sailing Team was established in 1954 by Peter Harken and Art Mitchell, and has been competing ever since.  The team is a completely student-run club team.

HoofersIn 1974, the Hoofers Sailing Club was distinguished as the largest university sailing club in the country, boasting between 2,500 and 3,000 members.  Since that time, this enthusiasm  has led to great success in collegiate sailing.  In 2009 the Badgers qualified for all three Championship events held in San Francisco and this year have the honor of hosting the National Championships. 
The Badger Sailors are getting great support from the Inland Lake Yachting Association (ILYA). A few of us ILYA sailors have created a list of our current college sailors and coaches.  We were impressed with the depth and accomplishments of the athletes on this list.  Please forgive us if we have missed any of our local sailors.  Watch out for them all as they participate in their qualifiers for the Nationals.

Terry Kohler of Sheboygan Yacht Club, Sheboygan, WI, has been elected to the Lake Michigan Sailing Hall Of Fame. Terry has been awarded the Nathanael G. Herreshoff Trophy, the most prestigious award given by US SAILING. A successful sail racer winning the Chicago Mackinac with a clean sweep in 1992, and many section races in the Mac. His success in business include his company Windway Capital Holding, which controls the Vollrath Company and the North Sails Group He was instrumental in having Sail Sheboygan, Ltd. become the fourth US SAILING Center in the United States.
Kohler is the major supporter of the 2010 Collegiate Nationals in Madison. He has donated $10,000 in cash and all the sails for the event. His early generous donation allowed the Badgers to purchase 12 new boats which will result in Calhoun and Geneva receiving the current Badger boats after the event. Calhoun will host the ILYA Youth Champs in August which will benefit from the original Kohler donation. His was the gift that kept giving.
