X Inland

The Pewaukee Yacht Club is getting ready to roll out the red carpet for the X-Fleet and their families for the 2010 X-Inland Championships.  With close to 100 boats already registered, this is an event you can't miss!  With just a week to go, here are a few highlights to share:

  • A great deal of information on the event, including specifics about registration, meal plans, soft goods and other pertinent regatta information is posted on the PYC's website.  Please go to, click on the icon for the 2010 X-Inland and review the documents.  Remember, registration is on Wednesday, July 28th from 8:00 AM to 6:00 PM.
  • We have an incredible raffle opportunity for you, sponsored by Melges Performance Sailboats/North Sails Zenda, including such great items as a full Harken envelope cover, a wakeboard and highlighted by a full set of North Sails for our lucky grand prize winner!  Tickets will be sold at registration with the raffle winners being chosen during the opening ceremony, Wednesday night.
  • Great social events, including the Mostaccioli Madness dinner before the Opening Ceremonies on Wednesday night topped by the Friday Night Lights event including dinner, music and the ever popular Carnival games (Sumo Wrestling, Tattoo and Photo booths, Texas Hold'em tables and more!).
  • VOLLEYBALL!  The Volleyball tournament will take center stage on our grounds.  Have you been practicing?
  • SAILING!  Pewaukee is known worldwide as a great place for what you're really coming for.  Come see what sailors like Coutts, Connors, Melges and others already know - this is a special place that you can't miss!

We're looking forward to seeing you!
No Tears is four days away - Email in your registration
It's the same every year but you put fear in the hearts of the host club. Pine Lake hosts the 20th anniversary of the No Tears Regatta. The event returns to the home of its birth a score of years later. Let's name some of the early sailors - Sally Barkow, Kelly Reese Hirn, John and Anne Porter, Manegold brothers, Justin Hood. But who will be there this year? Only thirty of you have registered and it's only a few days away. So. . . . sailing school instructors and parents, let's go and make the 20th event a success. Click here for registration. Please email for your intent to come.
Xtreme still dubbed the most fun
Addy Ferguson wins X treme
Fifty boats registered for the Oshkosh Xtreme regatta. Casino night wins with the kids and the Waters wins with the adults. The special adult lunches add to the charm of the event. The western X boaters showed their strength with four in the top five. Addy Ferguson from Minnetonka took the title; Joe Rolander was second followed by Will Cary of White Bear, Griffin Robillard of Minnetonka and Eddie Cox of White Bear. Full results here.
