Xtreme - an Xcellent Xtravaganza  
And this is why we come!
Winnebago was PERFECT! Steady 10-12 MPH winds, beautiful sunshine, picturesque WATERS in the background. Add the fabulous lunches - wraps and great salads for the parents. Unbelievable fun for the sailors gambling, winning raffle items, rekindling old friendships and building new ones during games. Instructors dressed to the nines mingling between the adults and sailors. This is just the best X regatta around. 47 sailors smiling all the time. 

This morning - this is how Oshkosh does it - five slots on the local TV station early morning news. Chairpersons, sailors, PRO all will become TV stars. The venue is Millers Bay with boats rigging in the later shots and reporting from the spacious grounds of the WATERS earlier in the morning.


 A special thanks to Mitchell Lee and Griffin Rolander for saving the troops on a tipover of a very young sailor after the race.

Zhik Lifejackets  
WI State Law and ILYA SI's
Although the Coast Guard is reviewing the definition or requirements to be Coast Guard approved, Zhik PFD's do not presently meet the definition. This is a popular PFD in youth sailing but is NOT legal for participation in our events. Please resurrect your old PFD's, borrow one or purchase a new PFD prior to our busiest youth regatta season. All X and Opti boats and sailors' equipment is subject to measurement prior to the registration at the event. 

The remaining Zhik apparel line is stylish, most suitable to our sport and marvelously made. It is the hottest selling equipment so enjoy. Zhik will be a sponsor of the ILYA Opti Championships so look for generous donations to the raffle and see their line of apparel from Stelluca, another sponsor of the Opti Champs. 
Volunteer Now  - Thank you to the many who have already signed up for the multitude of jobs  
ILYA Championships - Aug 19-23
The championship regatta is here before you know it. It takes an army of volunteers to man all the posts. We need crane operators, tractor and golf cart drivers, traffic control, Cantina servers and grillers for the children and volunteers, land and water shuttle drivers. All the tasks are an opportunity to visit with your sailing friends. No experience is necessary for most of the jobs. Knowledge of sailing is not a prerequisite. So bring your neighbor, your relative, your spouse. Offer to work the opposite shift from your sailing time. Free food provided and an identifying hat. 

Click here to volunteer for any day, any shift. This regatta is a partnership between the ILYA and Geneva. Be a partner and bring a partner. It will be fun.
