How to watch Olympic sailing  
Annie Haeger sits in second
There are three more races in the first round. The top ten will then progress to the medal round on Wednesday. Tuesday is a layday so it all depends on Monday.

ILYA Champs - Interview with the Champs #10-11-12  
Paul Reilly
Matt Pistay with Paul Reilly - 2015 ILYA C Champion

What is the most distinctive thing about your team?
 One of us is really getting old 
 
If you were a professional athletic team, who would you be and why?
Figure skating team. Chaz Michael Michaels and Jimmy MacElroy. They did not choke in the last scene and wear great costumes
  
 
Superstitions related to sailing a race?
 Red shorts on day 2 of the ILYA Championship 
 
Team movie or song?
The Longest Day 
 
Your one sailing tip
 Staying  ahead of Steve Schmidt, Andy Burdick and Peter Keck means you are having a great regatta 
 
If you could have anyone in the world as your heavy air crew, who would it be and why?
Matt Schmidt, Ben Porter or Dan Keck. They are the best.

Why do you attend the Inland Championships?  Or    What is one of your most memorable Inland Championship races?
The ILYA is the greatest sailing organization there is. Having the opportunity to sail against some of the best sailers anywhere is truly special. Socializing with everyone after each day of racing is even better.
 
 
Mark Tesar
 
What is the most distinctive thing about your team?
Being an MC sailor, this is basically a one man show.  Although, my wife helps me to rig and unrig the boat at regattas.  We like to see how quickly we can get the boat unpacked and packed back up at the end of the regatta.  It gives us one more way to race Stu.
 
If you were a professional  athletic team, who would you be and why?
I have always been a Minnesota Vikings fan, so I'll go with them, especially since they are a young, up and coming team right now, just like me
 
Superstitions related to sailing a race?
I count how many loops when I coil my halyard.  I don't know why, I just do.  Six is the fastest by the way...
 
Team movie or song (youtube links welcome)?
Definitely, Caddyshack.  I like to have fun and laugh
 
Your one sailing tip
Don't pinch, especially off the starting line, and especially if you are just leeward of me.  Also, get good starts, but don't be over and make sure you can hear your radio in case you are.  I have had some issues with that in the past
 
If you could have anyone in the world as your heavy air crew, who would it be and why?
Either of my daughters 10-12 years ago, when they were small enough to sail with me.  Sailing with your young child on an MC is the best.  For someone in the here and now, Libby Anderson from Clear Lake.  From the moment she started sailing, she has been enthusiastic and fearless.  Since I'm a big guy in a small boat, I also need someone not very big and she would be perfect
 
Why do you attend the Inland Championships?  Or    What is one of your most memorable Inland Championship races?
I like the stiff competition and the challenge of sailing in larger fleets.  The 80+ boats we had at Pewaukee a couple of years ago was fantastic.  I also like the social aspects and seeing friends from other lakes and hanging out with people that share my passion of sailing.

My crew is Rick Kotovic, Mike Dutton and niece Jane Rew this year. The editor resurrected this pic since the far right is Stu McNay, currently sailing 470s in Rio for the USA.
 
Most distinctive-  east -west... bringing Rick on Shimmer has always been great luck and fun. We had to teach him that in the east we are fast downwind because the women fly the kites--  more focus and talent by far. My niece Jane joins so many great female scow sailors from the Bay (and family)....  She's our real secret weapon.
 
Superstitions--   
We get nervous sailing in fresh water-- so we've been saying some prayers for God to add little salt to the rain- other than that- never sail with only dudes...
 
Song-
"Steer it up" by Bob Marley
 
Sailing Tip--  
broken record when you are lucky enough to sail with Harry 3 (H1-2-4 would say the same)... Angle of Heel.
 
If you could have anyone in the world as your heavy air crew, who would it be and why?
What's a heavy air crew?
 
Why do you attend the Inland Championships?  Or    What is one of your most memorable Inland Championship races?
I attend the Inlands because of the food.... well maybe its also the friendships that I have from decades of shared experiences and laughs on the Lakes and Bays-- all because we were all lucky enough to be born into the Scow 
Family... 
177 at Geneva!!  And counting  
Still time to register!
Error in the last edition. Schedule here:
 
Yes, seriously, we need Volunteers Thursday, Friday and Saturday. MC trailer pushers, tractor/ ATV drivers for C, traffic directors (you call the shots, take bribes, dance in the parking lot) especially during E haul out. Volunteer here. Here are our immediate needs:
Wednesday --- 
  • 3:30 - 7:00 ATV drivers parking lot to waterfront
Thursday --
  • all day Traffic Directors in parking lot directing trailer to waterfront
  • Golf cart driver 3:30 - 7:00
  • Shuttle bus drivers all day
  • Moving trailers from lot to waterfront and/or back
  • ATV drivers all day
  • Crane 11-3:00

Motorboats
- No motor boat launching once the sailing program starts. Launch early. No motor boats on piers or Club slips. Slips are ALL reserved. 

Pier space - Neighbors, neighbors - but they do own their own piers. ABSOLUTELY no use of neighboring piers or buoys except the two listed further below. Maple Hills Association, which is directly to our East has NOT given permission to use their piers, buoys or beach. Regatta volunteers will be monitoring and will ask you to leave if your on the Maple Hills property. The buoys at Brookwood, several piers to the west, is for RC. The buoys at South Shore Club, to our east about half way to Black Point, is for sailors or visiting power boats. 

All empty motor boat trailers must go to Majestic so if you are on a buoy, launch a power boat or going to a Club member's home, launch and bring your trailer  to Majestic. On-site boat/trailer parking is only for those dry sailing. 

Launch procedures - Kristin Gannon is the new parking lot guru. She has rear view mirror hang tags  - ONE vehicle per dry-sailed yacht. Please remember your hang tag each day if you are switching vehicles or you will be sent to Majestic to park. Dropoffs by vehicles without hang tags of people and/or gear will be at the entrance and golf car shuttles are available. RC will also be provided hang tags and will park in building 3 like last year. 

Alcohol for youth -----  STRICT legal age enforced. If you want to speed up your drinking process, go to registration on Wednesday with your state ID. You will be issued a wrist band which will allow you to forego carding at the bar. Make it fast and easy. If you are old, nevermind! We can tell you are of age. If you are a youthful rendition of yourself --- get a wristband. Last year's champions, other than Malcolm Lamphere, need not apply --- too old!

Lynch to the Rescue  
Driving from the North?
As you pass by Mukwonago, look left or east at the new Lynch facility. Then think of us!! Lynch has so generously supplied us with trucks, smaller transport vehicles, Geneva, Okoboji, Clear --- they have moved the ILYA this summer and your trophies at this event! Look for the Lynch vehicles or Patrick and Michael and say thank you.

Malcolm Lamphere
