Bilge Pullers Join UBS for Friday Night ILYA Championships Sponsorship  
Bilge Pullers
It is with pleasure the ILYA Bilge Pullers voted yesterday to support the ILYA Championships in coordination with UBS. The evening's theme is Sail it On, honoring our three-generation families who still actively participate in this organization. You will be surprised to see three families who were there when this all began. The twenty-three families are complete with a Bilge Puller representation that is enormous in number but also service to the Inland Lake Yachting Association. Look for a complete listing of the families and their Bilge Pullers when you come to Geneva. 

The ILYA thanks our benefactor for the many years and ways you contribute to the sport of scow sailing. 
ILYA Women's and Girls' Clinic  

 Thanks to Cedar, WI for hosting a lot of pink on both the sailors, event helpers and boat help. Lesa Gutenkunst begins each day with fitness, Steph Roble and Maggie Shea skyped in early in the morning, Sally Barkow spoke at the banquet. For the X fleet, instructor to student ratio makes this nearly a private lesson. For the adults, 1:1 on the boats is confidence-building. Race Committee instructor Lynn Barkow is teaching all aspects of the course. ---- Thanks, Cedar.
