Craig's Cantina
Join your friends in line for a $5 lunch at Craig's outdoor grill. Many of your friends will be serving you and you can volunteer also and meet all the sailors. Our youth gather here as well as all our volunteers who receive complimentary lunches from Craig. Craig Parker from Cedar Lake, Indiana, manages the grill. He donates all the extras and some of the mainstay protein served each day. 
Thanks to Lake Geneva Country Meats for its donation of hamburgers and brats. 
The Vorpagel Family has supported us for three years now by supplying the freshest of meats. The store is located on Hwy 50 east of Lake Geneva and is well worth a visit if you are in the area - meats, seafood and wine. What more could you want? Folks in the Geneva Lake area are familiar with the quality meat and visit often.

Their family has generated commodores of the Cedar Lake YC, an ILYA measurer (through marriage), a National C scow treasurer and ILYA Women's and Girls Clinic Chairs.

WYA C Regatta - Blown Away in Cold, Light Air - Haeger Handles it All  
Kent Haeger and Mike Greeson Win with 16 points in four tough races
Thanks to Melges' Hannah Noll, the event was featured on Sailing Anarchy. Click here to see the fun video. The champs are near the end. What amazing overhead views. 

Racing was tight with the best of the fleet in attendance. Friday's weather was cold and windy. Thirds all around and foul weather gear and jackets and . . .  Two tipovers between races with neither boat returning. Two solid races from PRO Larry Krause. Saturday was a light, warm day. An abandon race call was made in the morning due to light, shifty winds but two races in the afternoon turned out to be the last racing the fleet would see.

US Sailing - Saturday Night at the ILYA Championships  
Safety at Sea
Ever wonder what you would do if someone fell overboard from your boat? Do you have a plan to deal with heavy weather if you can't reach a safe harbor? Interested in selecting the right emergency communications equipment or storm sails, but you're not sure what to buy? US Sailing's Safety at Sea seminars are designed for sailors of all types and levels - cruisers and racers, novices and experts. Appropriate for a wide range of boats - small, big, monohulls, multihulls (and powerboats, too) - that are sailed anywhere - near shore and offshore. Curriculum is certified by US Sailing, with special attention to conditions and challenges of the host organization's sailing area. More than 1,000 sailors attend safety courses around North America every year and many bring their families and crews. Interested in attending? Interested in your club hosting? Find out more here: http://www.ussailing.org/education/safety-at-sea/
US Sailing is proud to support the ILYA and host this year's Saturday night Big Inland party. So break out your FAVORITE TROPICAL ATTIRE and get ready to #FINDTHEFUN Saturday night, August 19th at the Lake Geneva Yacht Club. In honor of this sponsorship, US Sailing will be offering current ILYA members a custom gift the night of the event if you join or renew with US Sailing anytime between now and the party. Please use this unique link: USSAILING-ILYA and be ready to #FINDTHEFUN with US Sailing at the Inland and all summer long.
Who is Coming? 181 but we know it will be 200!   
Still Time to register - help us plan by registering today
A fleet - 16 total 
E fleet - 55 total
C fleet - 55 total
MC fleet - 55 total

Visitors? Volunteers? Sailors with a morning or afternoon off?  
Consider volunteering
We are still in need of Parking Greeters to welcome our guests at the top of the hill and direct traffic, especially on Friday, Saturday and Sunday.
Another area of great need is ATV/Gator/Tractor Drivers.  In fact, if you have one of these vehicles (or know someone who has one) that we can use during the regatta, as well as drive it for at least one shift, you will help us fulfill two needs.
It is important that we get more Shuttle Bus Drivers (Wednesday evening, Thursday afternoon, and Friday evening); Pier Monitors (Friday); Trailer Pushers (Thursday afternoon and Saturday afternoon); and Shuttle Boat Drivers (Friday evening and Saturday afternoon).
Click links on left hand side of this newsletter to volunteer or sign up for social tickets. 

Special Seating  
There is limited, reserved seating in the restaurant area of the Lake Geneva Yacht Club. Due to the use of caterers for the event, the restaurant will not be open for regular table service for the Fri and Sat events. IF you want to make a donation to the event, (donation to the ILYA), need a guaranteed seat for your team or your special needs or special friends, visit the storefront for reserved seating. Signage will mark the table as yours for the event - other than Bilge Pullers. (and you can beg AJ for your seating there - he's the man in charge)
Never Too late 
 If anyone is inclined to contribute to the festivities, sponsorship money will now be applied to the lighter after-race fare which might benefit the youth who often go offsite to eat and return for the later evening revelry or the race committee who volunteer for the four-day event. Your name will be included as a sponsor. Contact David Perrigo to offer your support.
