It's all about the trophies!!!


 Some folks drink from the award; some place it on the mantle. Bre and Tim Krech believe in instilling the "will to win" at an early age. Tim won the ILYA C Champs last weekend. He continued to sail on the Zinn A boat throughout the week. Come to the trophy presentation on Sunday at Deephaven Elementary School to view more history-laden trophies.

Thanks, Bilge Pullers
 Bilge PullersIpad provides new opportunities

Wonder how the posting of mark roundings occurs? Thanks to the Bilge Pullers, the ILYA now has an Ipad which is carried on the water for immediate communication to our members. 1200 of you followed the first day races of A scows! Executive Secretary Smith, Scowlines editor Porter and PRO Hodgson posted the roundings. Rick Kotovic posted the results for the C portion.

The new Ipad also allows us to process credit cards at registration which is a convenience to our members but also saves Secretary Smith time when he returns home. He can answer emails while out on the water, post Scowlines each morning while at the site and watch the great video coverage while driving the rescue boat.

Thanks Bilge Pullers for the device which makes us more responsive to our members.

Hodgson Recognizes Jock Irvine
 30 years of service 

At the A Boat awards ceremony, when thanking his race committee, PRO Tom Hodgson made note of the fact that he and Jock Irvine celebrated their  30th  anniversary of working together at ILYA regattas as Boats 3 and 4.


Jock Irvine's sailing lineage is the equal of any family in the ILYA:  His great grandfather, Lucius Ordway, won the first-ever ILYA A scow regatta in 1898; his Grandfather, John G. Ordway, won six A scow Inlands and is in the ILYA Hall of Fame.  His father, Thomas E. Irvine, won the 1932 A scow Inland.


Jock's own sailing record includes top finishes in X's and E's, but his greatest record is his 40+ years of race committee service to the ILYA.  Jock is a hidden treasure, and is regarded throughout race management circles in the ILYA and Florida as one of the most competent, intuitive, and dedicated Boat 4's that any race officer could hope to have on the leeward end of a starting line.


As Tom said at the ceremony, "There are many generous people in the ILYA, but none more so than Jock Irvine."


Happy Anniversary, Jock, and thank you from all the sailors in the ILYA!
