The I-20 class had a great first afternoon of racing in Neenah, Wisconsin on the beautiful north end of Lake Winnebago.  Racing began after lunch with solid but shifty winds out of the Northeast.  PRO Devon Farley and his race committee team have had their hands full with shifty varying wind conditions.  Local Winnebago sailor Aaron Lynn and his crew Keith Rosenbaum showed off their expertise leading the fleet for the majority of the first race.  Conditions continued to shift North and varied up and down for the duration of the second race.  The lead changed multiple times throughout the race, with many places being decided right at the finish line.  John Hayashi and crew Anita Bersie-Chabalowski squeaked out the race 2 win after a tense tacking battle with sailors Steven Catlin & Jack Boatman. Sailing conditions are expected to be good for the next two days of racing on Winnebago.  With four past ILYA I-20 champs vying for the title in 2010 (Geoff Catlin, Aaron, John Spargo & John Hayashi) and a handful of fresh young faces the competition is certain to remain tight.
