Pewaukee Invites you to Match Racing Presentation

On September 7th the PYC will be hosting an awareness event on behalf of Terry Kohler and the US Sailing Center - Sheboygan.  This event will be held right before the Buddy Melges Challenge Sept 8-12th in Sheboygan and we have been fortunate to have some world class match racing women superstars in the program.   The purpose is to inform sailing enthusiasts of the fabulous US Sailing facility (1 of 4 in the US) that we are fortunate to have right in our own backyard and also introduce the aspect of match racing to those unfamiliar with that form of competition.

Please contact either Julie Pedretti at  414-861-3077 or me at   414-795-4443 if you have any questions.

We appreciate your help and hope to see you and many ILYA members on Tuesday evening the 7th of September at the PYC.
