ILYA X championships --- here we go! New Champs to be crowned  
Near Perfection at Delavan
Weather: Wind 10-14 all day in a perfect length of the lake direction. Four races by both fleets!! Nearly impossible to achieve. Near perfection -- OK, it could have been 5 degrees warmer
Senior Fleet: Kyle Navin: - 1-1-7-1 Near perfection but not 100%. Rarely does a senior sailor win three races in a day. 
Junior Fleet: Race one Ellie Harned; Race two Suzanne Ackley; Race three Jack Scherer; Race four Meta Simon ---- Near PERFECTION by the girls of the junior fleet.
Fleet growth: Minnetonka is BACK!! SEVEN sailors all juniors! Perfect potential for growth!
Delavan Lake Yacht Club:  PERFECT in every way
Junior fleet synopsis - 
Four different winners shows the depth of the fleet. Boat handling is utterly impressive but still there are smiles and signs of youthful playfulness. A large, large fleet that handles starts magnificently. While girls are winning races, the consistency of Owen Harrod of White Bear is an omen of good things to come. For the editor, the most significant aspect is the progress in the fleet. It seems each sailor is showing learning with time. Each third of the fleet has its own set of champions within it. These are tight races within the individual thirds of the fleet. It is tough competition throughout. Yesterday every sailor had something to be proud of - individual accomplishment and the race committee notes the improvement. It is a marvel to watch this fleet. 
The junior RC will sport pink today to honor or remember breast cancer survivors or fighters. This tradition is nearly ten years old now. Unfortunately there was one single year when our youth experienced five moms battling and it was very near and raw in our hearts. The tradition continues and is always fun to find the male RC scrambling to look pink. So give the Delavan home lake crew a little credit as they appear in some salmon which we are all callling pink.
Ellie Harned and Stella Marban come into the finish from the starboard side to take their first lead of the race. While down in the standings, be sure to look at her throwout and note how high she will be after today. 
Suzanne Ackley (Pine) and Julia Janssen (North) Take Race Two. 
Jack Scherer and Jacob Bowman (J-2) save the day from a total girl sweep. But what, what a regatta he is having. 
Meta and Fritz Simon (V-213) hold the lead after one day of racing. 
And here's what the course looks like to RC. And this is midfleet so the competition is tight.
Consistency counts. Owen Harrod and Henry Seum (White Bear) sit in second overall. His coaches are two past champions -- just wow is all that can be said.

Senior Fleet Synopsis
Again four great races but one sailor dominated the top. Kyle Navin and Mya Burdick won THREE races. While that is so rare in the senior fleet, there is no room to breathe or celebrate the day. Chapman Petersen and Caroline Holland are only two points behind. Hometown favorite Nathan and Graham Hetzler are showing a strong, strong start and will prove to be a challenge only eight points out of the lead. 

The senior fleet is a bit more aggressive on the starts with a couple recalls but to be fair the wind was a bit less steady than on the junior end of the lake. The sailor to watch in the senior fleet with a throwout is Sam Spencer. Both fleets are scheduled to sail eight races with a throwout at six. 

It's Geneva's Navin and Burdick for Race One win

And again!

Melges Rowe at 29er Nationals followed by 29er Worlds; Roble Shea in Germany  
Alamitos Bay YC

Follow Harry Melges IV and Finn Rowe in California the next week as the Worlds begins. The Nationals looks promising a 5-8-39 first day but a DNF pushed them down. This is a team right on the verge of breaking through to the top. Good luck. 

Roble Shea in Kiel, Germany which starts Sunday.
