ILYA X Champs - Day One - Four Races  
Henry Rolander Leads Junior Fleet

Geneva's Henry Rolander with Jake Sierakowski won race #1 and race #4. The most impressive race was the last of the day when Henry was OCS and he came back to win. It was a great day for the Menace.

Pewaukee's Robbie Lindemann and Sawyer Wozniak sailed Whale'n to the race two win. If Whale'n sounds familiar, it is because the boat has carried many Sawyer grandchildren to victory - Driscoll and Gutenkunst children have enjoyed the boat. 

Finn Rowe and Hunter Sharpe took race three. The Butcher has a Geneva-Gull connection. The boat originally belonged to Harris Buddig who sailed it exceedingly well. Harris became an instructor on Gull Lake, the host club, and his boat has come back for a victory lap.
Senior Fleet
Four different race winners but the overall lead belongs to White Bear's Kate Cox with Izzy Boo. A consistent 2-4-3-3 has her 11 points ahead of her nearest competitor. Race winners were Beulah's Patrick Schmidt with Jonah Boykin - race 1; Cedar's Nick Rusher with Charlie Eckert - race 2; Pewaukee's Alec Bischoff and Quinn Kaiser - race 3; DJ Jaessing (Cedar) with Marie King- race 4. 

The day began with a postpone as light air had no steady direction and needed to build. The day progressed to a medium air day as both fleets sailed a total of four races. The sailors were returning to harbor at 6:00 but the four races gets them closer to the magic "six" where a throwout kicks in.  
Watch daily for the results here. Scores are posted after each race.

Hoofers celebrates 75 years  
Submitted by Bob Stoehr

Hello everyone!! The Challenger A Scow has made the local news. 

This weekend is the 75th anniversary of the Hoofers Sailing Club. 

Dignitaries and past members and Commodores of the Sailing Club will be in Madison this weekend to celebrate the 75th. I want to thank Leo the Legend for all the work that he has put in to get the Challenger back in the water. He also recreated the 75th year logo in GIANT size and has put it on our Giant Mainsail. The boat is sailing great and Leo will probably be sailing daily thru the sailing season. If you are ever down at the Union and see the big sail go up, that means that the Challenger is going out. We are always looking for crew, so come on down and go for a ride on the A Scow. In sailing circles, the A Scow is known as the Ultimate Ride.  Try it out.

Have a great summer and check out this video.

Sail Fast!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
