 SAILGROOVENo racing but Sailgroove works on 
30+mph winds after a morning of storms on the radar netted no racing at Green Lake. Twenty-two A teams and 34 MC's stayed on shore watching the winds develop. Half-hour updates via radio from the RC resulted in abandonment at 3:00 for MC's and 3:30 for A's.
 
BUT Sailgroove's Chris Love lost no time in the lull in activity. Chris traveled down to the Baptist Assembly to catch the land action. Amidst rumors of "wouldn't it be fun to ski. . .", yes, you guessed it. The old "can you ski behind an A scow" resurfaced. No footage to know if it occurred but an interview with PRO Jeff Butzer is posted on Sailgroove. Two more postings report today's fun while on shore. Green Lake hosts the two fleets with a steak fry and corn roast tonight.  
 

SCHECK, BURTON AND KRECH WIN IT ALL!

C Fleet 

 Tim Krech with wife Bre and third crew Ann Scheuerman took home the silver in the 2009 ILYA C Championships. Krech had the event won yesterday but chose to sail the race with his dad today. Joe Kutschenreuter with crew Randy Schmidt and Katie Porter hung on to second using the last race as a throwout. Paul Reilly with Aaron Mann and Catherine Burke remained in third. The top three finishers show the versatility of the boat. Joe was the top junior and Reilly the top senior. Reilly is near legend after winning the C championships some  20 years ago, leaving scow sailing for those long years and returning last year to relive his youth. He sailed like a youngster all week. Congrats to all three. All these and more on Sailgroove.org .  Look for the list of events covered and we are there: ILYA Multiclass Championships. Check out Aaron Mann's interview on the first day, Catherine Burke's interview entitled "Live Bait", the life of a third, interviews with Bre and Tim Krech and more.

 Burtonwinning
  Tom Burton with crew Bruce Martinson, Martha Morgan and Andy Ferguson
It took seven races and the last race to determine the '09 E champ and Tom Burton it is. It became a two horse town with Brian Porter's 14 in race #6. Barkow faltered in the last race to give Burton a four point lead and another championship. Lots of young faces in the fleet with crew and skipper alike. Erik Bowers won the last race with dad Mark, MIke Woldum and Ali Gutenkunst on board.Check out the Sailgroove E ride with Chris Love on Rob Evans boat.

We move on to the next portion of the regatta with the majestic A's and fast MC's taking to Green Lake. The excitement and power builds as the A's entered town. Even with covers enveloping the hulls, you could sense the power of these A machines traveling through downtown. The Heidel House is near capacity. New race committee move in. Lots of changes but Scowlines and Sailgroove remain on board. We have to change media boats to accommodate the raw speed of the A's. The executive team of Jim Smith and Dave Schmidt remain on the last morning of measurement.
