ILYA SESSION ONE ENDS ON NO-RACE DAY 

oKOBOJI session 1
 
This photo does not do justice to the beauty of the Okoboji YC building but it demonstrates the activity level as the first session of the '08 ILYA Championships concludes. The trophy presentation expressed the genuine appreciation of the sailors for the 'Boji effort. Perhaps the most articulate was M-16 champ Jan Gill  who said it for us all. This week has been an all out show on land as well as the water as these Iowa folks give us the best hospitality around. Thanks to Brad Farrar who is a blur of speed all day. He manages the club year round but shines each day we are here. Club officer Sheryl Jones has been there nonstop serving the ILYA sailors.
 
BURDICK AND CREW TAKE E TITLE 
BURDICK TEAM
 
Andy Burdick credited his team for the Team 45 victory. He has the privilege of a consistent team of Peter Keck (who sails on his A, E and in the old days C. Peter is a C Nationals and ILYA Champ in his own right), Coye Harrett (also on the Burdick/Blanchard A scow and off to Edgewood College in Madison) and Meg Six (off to the UW Madison sailing team). Burdick's race finishes demonstrate his continued skill in any class.

COLBURN FINALLY WINS 
cOLBURN AT ilya cHAMPS 
Three times a bridesmaid!. Colburn confided he has wanted this title and he could not appear more moved. With longtime crew Martha Long, Colburn dominated the fleet. He is a past Invitational winner but is also an avid promoter for the fleet. What a great winner! For MC results, click here.
 
JAN AND DEBBIE GILL TOP M-16 FLEET
 
Gills at Champs 
 Jan and Debbie Gill took home the M-16 gold but left Okoboji with golden words to remember. Gill seemed so genuinely thankful to this hosting club for its efforts. From their hosting family to the gracious club, Gills enjoyed the event ----- straight race wins didn't hurt! M-16 results All photos by Pat Dunsworth
 
In the hoopla of the trophy presentation, Commodore Porter inadvertently skipped thanking the E fleet race committee. This is a reminder to thank all RC but a special recognition to PRO Mike Sherin, Nancy and Russ Ackley, Pat Kardos and OYC members Stuart Potter and Steve Rose.
BARKOW IN THIRD AT OLYMPICS
Team Seven logoBarkow sailed one race yesterday and WON THE RACE which moved her into third. Two races are scheduled for tomorrow. Anna Tunnicliffe in the  radial still leads the radial fleet.

X BLUE CHIP
 
Lee Repeats Again
   by Cindy Rusher 
The 2008 X Blue Chip was sailed at Big Cedar Lake, Wisconsin on Friday, August 8th and Saturday, August 9th.  On Friday, we had light and shifty winds and were only able to get in one race, won by Michael and Mitchell Lee (I 92).  A second race in the afternoon had to be cancelled due to 90 degree wind shifts.  Friday night the adults enjoyed themselves at the famous CLYC Blue Chip cocktail party while the kids were entertained by a dodgeball tournament, Baggo, and a pizza party with a DJ and dancing.
Saturday morning brought more shifty winds from the west but we were able to sail 2 races back to back.  The first race was won by George Kutschenreuter and John Barr (B 16) and the second race was won once again by Michael and Mitchell Lee (I 92).  The Lee brothers ended up winning the regatta with a 1-2-1.  They were also last year's X Blue Chip winners.  The top 5 were as follows:
   ·     I 92 Michael and Mitchell Lee
          ·        B 16 George Kutschenreuter and John Barr
          ·        V 62 Nicholas and Madeline Clemence
          ·        A 8 Patrick Egan and Alie Rusher
          ·        A 22 Katie Sacotte and Stephanie Leftwich
