Miami Olympic Classes Regatta
bischoffBischoff Retires in Style - Midwest fashion

Terry Bischoff says goodby to Miami Olympic Classes Regatta race committee work after more years than can be counted. With his involvement came an opportunity for many of the ILYA's race committee personnel to hone their skills at one of the world's best venues, with the world's best sailors. Chip Mann has recorded the celebration here. Note Chip stayed dry as Terry's crew gave him a fond farewell Midwest style.

The Board is pleased to thank Chuck Lamphere (Geneva) and Beth Wyman (Oshkosh) for their six years of service.

Thank you both for outstanding service.
