Andy Burdick Dominates at ILYA MC Championships
Three shifty races on Friday; three planned today
From start of race one, Burdick looked to be the one to beat. He popped off the port end of the line and looked to port tack the fleet although looking through 81 boats from the starboard end is intimidating. The north shore paid off for the early leaders on leg one but in race two Mark Tesar could be heard, "Don't talk to me about the north shore of Pewaukee." It was one of those days where sailors lived or died by a side. Roundings were often reversed by 30 boats. The last leg was key. 
 Noel Neuman of Upper Minnetonka took race one leading each mark. 
Andy Burdick of Geneva (but don't fool yourself, he grew up on Pewaukee and may be the wizard of Pewaukee) took the other two races sailing alone for the first time in a few years. Last weekend he had Monroe Melges, Mya and Finn Burdick on at the Western Michigans in a C scow. He leads the fleet by 16 points after three races. 
Harken generously provided tours on Friday for the entertainment. Tonight the famous rib night will entice most of the fleet. Thanks to Tammy Sawyer for the photos and to the many spectator boats. PRO Mark DeGuire had his crackerjack Pewaukee team together with Dennis Gazzana as port end. Lesa and John Gutenkunst along with Sherri Perrigo welcomed everyone and made sure the social side of the event is smashing. David Perrigo and his outside crew made 81 boats at the launch look easy. ---- an efficient, well-run event from the start. 
100 boats for ILYA Championships  
Breaking News ------Judges are Announced
Sailing may be important BUT the big announcement is the judging team for Karaoke Night. Musical talent Tom Hodgson was the first to receive a contract as the event's MC (emcee)/Judge. Next with a reduced contract was ILYA Executive Secretary Jim Smith. Bet most of you did not realize he can sing. The headliner with a multiyear deal is the ILYA's own Paula Abdul - Julie Haeger who has dance moves not seen before. She is truly the beauty of the judging team. Rumors abound related to the contestants. Come join us. 

A Scows - 20 boats
C Scows - 36 and counting
E Scows - 36 boats
I-20s - 11 boats

There is still room to attend - both on water and land. Please register online to expedite the registration process. List crews, please. The registration team is happy to assist on Wednesday with all registration aspects.
