 Come welcome Freytag and Schneider - Class of 2011 

William "Smiley" Freytag - Geneva

- Outstanding C-scow sailor in the 1950s, winning the 1951 and 1952 Championships. This feat temporarily retired the Warren-Carpenter Trophy, which he donated back to the ILYA as the Warren-Carpenter-Freytag Trophy. Raced very competitively in the early days of the M-20 fleet, winning ILYA championships in 1968 and 1971. Worked for Melges Boat Works, traveling the country tirelessly promoting scows. Many fleets outside the central ILYA area owe their existence to Smiley Freytag's salesmanship and teaching.

Bob "Boober" Schneider - Okoboji

- One of the great characters of the ILYA, as affable and friendly as any on shore, Schneider was a tremendous competitor on the water. He won three consecutive C-scow ILYA Championships from 1967-1969, a time considered by many to be the Golden Age of C-scow sailing in the Inland. Winning multiple individual races, his victories came against a list of competitors whose names already appear in the ILYA Hall of Fame. -  

Try Your Luck - Try today's quiz #2



On behalf of DLYC (host of 2012 ILYA X Championships), Dave Perry and ILYA,  you are invited to try your luck and win! Dave Perry has allowed us to post 4 quizzes online from his book "Dave Perry's 100 Best Racing Rules Quzzes"

Each morning during this Winter Inland week through Friday, a link will be posted on the DLYC Website (posted later Monday 2/6). Simply fill out the questionnaire and the quiz, and submit your answer to the Racing Rules Quiz.

A partial judge, Dave Perry himself and some unnamed sailors will select 5 winners to receive and autographed book at the Winter Inland on Friday and Saturday. Though you don't need to be present to win, those whose answers are well done will have a better chance of winning

X Boat sailors (and their support teams) will have first options at winning, but all can play! Be certain to completely fill out the forms. It won't take long and you might win an personally autographed copy of the latest 100 Best Racing Rules Quizzes - and have it personally delivered by the author!

Come and visit us at our table at the Winter Inland - posters and softgoods promoting our X Champ event. There's nothing like a regatta on Delavan!
