ILYA C Invitational - Patience is KEY!!!
Beulah's Haeger and Porter Continue to Hold Lead         
PRO Larry Krause and his team demonstrated deliberate delay as the fleet waited all morning for a race. The starting area changed a couple times as winds shifted but, more importantly, pressure would not build to allow fair racing. One start was off and running but the appearance of beautiful boats on starboard - ALL OF THEM - necessitated a call back to start again but a most prudent Krause sent them in for lunch. Afternoon winds were not much more faithful to the cause. Just as Krause was ready to think abandon for the day, the wind gods cast a two-hour spell of 10-12 in a steady SE direction. Never has a race committee mobilized so quickly to take advantage of what had been a gift. Congrats to John Porter/Pat Welscher and Alex Kay/Katie Bruder for the two race wins today.

 The Melges 17 has become the boats for sons and fathers to enjoy. Lake Geneva has started this trend. Yet, on Pewaukee youth and experienced alike sail the boat. Light air prevailed - as with the C Invite and WYA X - but PRO Mark DeGuirre got in three races on Saturday.
1 - Harry Melges III and Harry Melges IV      3    Geneva
2 - RJ Porter/                                        6         Geneva

10- Chris Katzfey                                  33        Indianapolis
Race results do not include the crews. Those listed above are known to the Scowlines staff. They are father and son. Geneva and Pewaukee have fleets of over ten.
 C 420 North Americans
St. Margaret's Bay  -    Canada
Augie Dale and skipper Aubrey Giblin have slipped to fifth. The report is another ILYA sailor, Charlie Hollister of Pine, will be her crew at the next big event, Buzzards Bay.
Laser Canadian Nationals
 Have you ever? Only in your sailing dreams     
Malcolm Lamphere continues to dominate the Laser Radial course. A throwout went into effect today and Lamphere throws out a -----FIRST!!!  Imagine how many of you can make that claim. Sailing concludes tomorrow. 
Our future Olympians
Back to Hard Work         
Annie Kate Haeger and Briana Provancha returned to Europe are in LaRochelle, France. They won a smaller tuneup event before the season revs up again. It was an impressive 20 boat lead on the second place team.
Erik Bowers will compete in the Canadian North Americans at CORK in his Laser. He has arrived for a week's practice before the big event. CORK (Canadian Olympic Regatta at Kingston) is a perennial favorite of Canadians and Americans alike. It features a youth section as well as the traditional Olympic classes of boats.
Gordy Lamphere returns to the European circuit with Haeger for more Finn Sailing.  
Even our Older Sailors Continue to Shine

Editor's note - the Laser is a boat that transcends all ages and countries. The District 20 is most active with frostbiting open to all in Milwaukee and Chicago. Milwaukee will host the D20 Champs in September.

 MC Masters Champs -
   No regatta

Today was the last day of the 2013 Masters Regatta.  Everyone was at the club early except for the smartest guy registered at the event. But I digress.  As you can see from the accompanying picture, the radar image for the Columbus area was, shall we say, colorful.  It looked OK at 9 and we expected a harbor gun but the PRO had a handle on the situation and wisely advised that we would wait.  Sure enough, right on cue, the thunder boomers advanced on the area like Rommel on Tripoli. Whoever was in the water got out of the water right quick and tied their boat to the trailer.

Lunch came early and we were reminded that since we did not yet have three completed races for the regatta, the schedule would be extended for a possible 3pm start. Many weighed the situation and opted for getting a jump on the trek home.  Those that stayed were rewarded with a call to the water and a chance to pose for pictures but, alas, no wind equals no race.  So 2013 will be a blank space on the perpetual trophies.  Jeff Grinnan  is our regatta winner with 3 points, Bruce Gallagher 2nd with 7 points, John Bright 3rd with15 points, Fred Herr 4th with 17 points and Hometown star Richard Blake was 5th with 18 points. Complete results will be posted at

Inland X Champs - Oshkosh

Xchamps  Still time to come         
Registrations are down and yet we know you are coming. Please help the local club plan for the meals and parties by registering online now. The regatta registration is at the ILYA website and the Oshkosh website has meals, softgoods and party reservation sites.
Oshkosh promises wind after hot, low wind days at the Xtreme. PROs Chip Mann and Mark Tesar are so experienced on this lake. It will be a grand event.
This one is for all the marbles. If you want your child to be an Inland champ in a couple years, come now to get the feel of the event.
No Tears Optimist - Nagawicka on Monday
 Come For Fun!         
It's been many years since Nagawicka hosted a big Opti event. It is a lovely club with a strong, strong youth program. Monday young tykes from our many SE WI lakes will gather to sail in one of their first events.
Instructors - remember to bring your sailors but also a radio with your boat so we can communicate on the race course to create the best experience for our sailors. Remember, clubs should send a motor boat with the sailors in either the junior or senior fleet.
Sailors - come to enjoy a great day of instructional sailing. The junior and senior fleets are based on age, not skill. While you may be the champion on your own lake, it is possible you are still No Tears material. If you are still struggling going upwind, aren't on the starting line, not confident in medium wind, not sailing sitting on the rail - these are all indications that you may be a No Tears sailor.
Parents - the PROs have been at this for over 20 years. The best support we have is a cadre of the finest coaches trailing the boats. We explain the courses, wait for our sailors to make it to the course, coach and coach and, most importantly, meet new friends who will remain our friends throughout our sailing life.
Join us on Monday on Nagawicka.
