X Inland - 118 boats set to sail opening Sixty-two senior sailors and fifty-six junior sailors registered today for the 2010 ILYA X Championships. PRO's Chip Mann and Tom Hodgson are set with volunteer race committee while the Pewaukee contingent hustled today to complete a flawless registration day. The challenge of a "no wake" will make spectating a bit more calm. Parents will be choosing one fleet or the other due to flooding of the shoreline. Both last year's champs return to action tomorrow. Clear Lake, IA is our most distant boat unless Gull Lake, MN gets the mileage award. Measurer Dave Schmidt worked all day to assure proper weight and flotation.. the start tomorrw is 10:00 AM.

Geneva offers overnight sailing camp b This summer we are very happy to be partnering with the Lake Geneva Youth Camp to provide a set of unique sailing camps out of their fantastic Conference Point facility. Since 1950, Lake Geneva Youth Camp has been running Christian youth camps in the area. Due to the 2010 ILYA Championship regatta GLSS is unable to have classes during these dates, but with this new partnership the show goes on. The GLSS instructors will partner up with the Lake Geneva Camp staff on the water and in the classroom, giving the children a great sailing school experience; but this is only the beginning. Lake Geneva Youth Camp staff will offer traditional Christian camp activities including chapel, outdoors games, campfires and an overnight campout. By combining quality instruction and leadership from both the GLSS and LGYC staff, this week will be one your kids will never forget!

Okauchee Registration on Sunday Opti Inland ILYA OPTI Champs At Okauchee Lake August 1-3, 2010 Greetings OPTI Champs participants. Okauchee Lake is looking forward to the upcoming championship race. We are expecting more than 100 racers and have very high water conditions on Okauchee. This quantity of participants and this lake level requires that we be very creative in our use of club grounds, the lake and the neighborhood. To make this a success for all, please read carefully. REGISTRATION: AUGUST 1, 3:00 PM to 7:00 PM only, per NOR. There will be no day of race registration. Additional lunches and T-shirts will be available at registration. At registration, a boat number will be assigned to your hull and to your dolly. This number corresponds to your storage location on the club grounds. Mandatory boat measurement/inspection will be held at the regatta headquarters from 3:00PM-7:00 PM on Sunday August 1 only. DO NOT BRING YOUR POWER BOAT! Okauchee Lake is at this moment under a slow no wake restriction. We hope this restriction is lifted by the start of the regatta. Okauchee is heavily patrolled by several law enforcement agencies especially during this time period. Do yourself and our neighbors a favor and leave your personal motor boat at home. We will provide adequate spectator boats staffed by skippers familiar with the rules of the lake. No power boat launching at regatta headquarters. OLYC does not have adequate pier space to accommodate off-lake boats. If you do bring your boat, off-site launching is available at The Golden Mast. A mooring should be brought for temporary mooring at the yacht club. Water taxis will be provided to transport you from your mooring to the clubhouse. No overnight mooring allowed. Sailing School Boats may be launched at the Bauers Lane launch. Trailers may be kept at the Kay residence. Further instructions will be provided on Sunday.
