As you spend this holiday with friends and family and recall all sailing has contributed to your life this past year, consider your end of year giving to one of your many favorite sailing institutions:
1 - Your local sailing school - most of these are charitable. Your yacht club depends on the health of your present youth fleet. Give a donation of cash or a donated boat. ----- A boat builds your club, your local fleet and your club's future.
2 - Your Olympic hopeful sailor - the 2014 season begins early in January. ISAF Miami precedes the European circuit. While you watch the 2014 Winter Olympics, know the 2016 Rio Summer Games are closer than you think. Our sailors are training hard already
3 - The Big Inland 2014 or 2015. We are working diligently on both. Consider sponsoring either or both.
4 - The ILYA Foundation which supports any of our sailors who sail beyond our normal events. Look for a change in our focus in 2014 as we begin to feel confident we can additionally support hardship youth cases and underdeveloped member clubs with youth initiatives.
5 - ILYA Promotion Committee who continues to subsidize all youth entries to ILYA regattas. Youth attend for 50% off registration with ILYA support. The Promotion Committee raises the funds to annually to continue this endeavor.
6 - The Buddy Melges Sailing Center - the Bilge Pullers are sponsoring a site within the center to feature our legends and history. Help create a repository of ILYA memorabilia or support the Center itself as Geneva Lake Yacht Club has the opportunity to honor one of our own.
