But this was the best darn Regatta!!!
How can that be? Rarely do sailors receive such hospitality from a host club. It began when we arrived to see a new wide porch which added seating for dining and general viewing of the lakefront, a newly finished bar, a new front entrance, new chairs, new lighting on the porch to match the favorite green drink, red drink and blue drink!! Then add breakfast every morning - no, not rolls and fruit! Try scrambled eggs with biscuits and gravy, Mexican casserole, bagels with salmon cream cheese and French Toast casserole with pecans. Prime rib for dinner, salmon/shrimp and chicken another night. "It's the only regatta where I GAINED weight!" To a person, the ten trophy winners acknowledged the welcoming folks who were so proud to host an ILYA event. And did you know? The CLYC Board requires ILYA membership of its Board members? Their connection with our organization is something to behold. Thanks to our Indiana friends for providing us with such a stellar event. 
After working hard on the water, the Race Committee (minus the most upright or uptight female member) indulged in some post-race activity. Dave Baldus of the pin boat noted the strong leadership of PRO Larry Krause in developing "team building" amongst the team. Rick Trester, an esteemed past commodore of the ILYA,  noted the RC MUST CONNECT with its fleet. All the time the wise and parental Mark DeGuire had "fixed" the shotski with the female bartender to serve non-alcoholic liquid after assessing the condition of his teammates. --- So fun by all. It truly was a great time.

No Tears - Lake Beulah -- Monday, July 21  
The strongest aspect of the No Tears is the coaching from our fine instructors. Radios help us communicate with the Race Committee and between instructors to assure the most enjoyable experience for our youngest sailors. 

This is a first regatta for many - parents and sailors alike. Expect a safety check of your boat. This is  to begin to teach you the intracicies of the boat. 

There are two courses based on age, not skill level. If you placed in the top five of the event last season or have been sailing in the Red, White and Blue fleet at other events - this is NOT FOR YOU! This is an opportunity for our newest sailors to experience a regatta of their own.

Pram Power  
North Lake's 25th Annual Pram Power Regatta-Thurs, AUG 7

Don't miss out, August 7th is less than 3 weeks away!  A day dedicated to making sure kids have the opportunity to put together the sailing skills they have been learning all summer.  It is geared to beginner sailors and those who do not sail many regattas.  The fleet is split up between 2 groups based on their age as of JANUARY 1, 2014, Juniors (age 8 and under) and Seniors (age 9 and over).  Because the fleets sail at different times, there is an opportunity to have Jrs and Srs share boats.  Plenty of coaches and boats from North Lake and other represented sailing schools come and work together to assist kids when and where needed.

So what does the non sailing group do while one group is sailing?  CRAFTS.  This year is sure to be packed with great crafts.  We will have Shrinky Dinks, Rock Painting, Tie Dye shirts (so don't forget a 100% cotton shirt white or light colored or you can bring a pillow case), photo frame, and a CD Fish to hang in the garden or house.  These same activities are included in the non-sailor craft package which is great if your sailor has siblings that aren't sailing. How fun does that sound!  As in the past few years a raffle table will be set up.  There are some really awesome items to help gear your sailor and a lot of other exciting items for kids.

What can we say about lunch!  Homemade Tacos, fruit and cookies.  We really encourage pre-buying the lunch so we can plan appropriately. Remember the non-sailor craft package includes their lunch.

Late fee registration begins after August 4, so register today!  New this year is ONLINE registration and payment.    Please give the online option a try!

Terese Bailey is the registration coordinator and can be contacted at and 262-751-5000
