TEd Keller
Nagawicka Yacht Club threw a party like no other. All ten award winners stopped to thank the club for a great show. Have you ever heard ALL the winners give accolades to the organizing host? From the food, hospitality, race committee work(PRO Russ Ackley and crew) and good, strong winds the MC Invitational is in the books. Ted Keller (above) took home top prize with an impressive 1-1-9-2-2. Dan Fink, first time Nag sailor, sailed to a strong second. ILYA MC rep, Noel Neumann, was third; Mark Wilfert in fourth; Eric Oppen in fifth. Top Grand Master was Pine's Tim Fredman, top master Pewaukee's Peter Toumanoff, top woman Deb Gluek, top junior Chris Acker.
heinze trophy 
Regatta Chair Craig Heinze fabricated all the trophies and what magnificent pieces of art! Quantum provided the mock-up sails which were encased in glass with the Nag sticker. They are stunning and demonstrate the effort Nagawicka expended on this event. Race 1 winner trophy was fitting -- a Stamm block encased in a shadow box. The old timers will recall Stamm boat works located on Nagawicka. Deb Zeigler displays her award.
Thanks to the entire Nagawicka YC for an exceptional event. There wasn't a face absent. Five women showed up to SAIL! This is a local club with all the right stuff. For results, check the ILYA website  today. Thanks again, Nagawicka for all your efforts.
andyeinviteHard to beat a  1-1-1-1-2! Andy Burdick with Peter Keck, Coye Harrett and Michael Lee (pictured to the left in a Larry Kmiecik photo) schooled the rest of the competition at the ILYA E Invitational. Only Jule Hannaford beat Andy for a race. Delavan with PRO Terry Bischoff held five of the heaviest, calamity-filled races in any one's memory.
The asymmetrical E's raced around the lake and loved the onshore parties in a successful, marvelous event. Delavan showcased its year-old remodeling project and more than one sailor stood in the entry to enjoy the wooden C boat perched on a high ledge. There is history, artwork and new graphics for this event which decorated the yacht club in an exciting manner. Regatta chair Mark Hetzler welcomed each sailor with a complimentary cocktail party on Thursday and the fun continued through Saturday night with local musicians Robert and Michael Mahoney assisting with dancing the night away.
The results are in! Geneva looked tough but had to share the top five with two strong Minnetonka boats. Vincent Porter returns to the area with a second-place debut back into Midwest sailing. Jule Hannaford was 3rd, Bill
Allen fourth and Ken Wruk in fifth. Delavan had to be proud of its hometeam led by Tim O'Keefe. Buddy Melges returned to his roots sailing D1883 under the hometown emblem.
Photos by Pat Dunsworth (above) and Larry Kmiecik show exciting mark roundings, a bit of swimming but great racing throughout the event.
