Successful Day of Sailing on Pewaukee
Report by Ben Biwer
Friday started out looking a lot like Thursday - no wind.  However, the weather men made the correct forecast in saying the wind would fill in at 10 AM.  It wasn't much, but it was enough to allow Senior PRO Chip Mann and Junior PRO Tom Hodgson to take their fleets out and get two races in.  The wind was up and down from 3 to 8 mph but rarely shifted from its original south southwest direction.  Both fleets managed to get two races in.

Johnny Ferguson with crew Sam Maxwell from Minnetonka managed to win the first race in the Junior fleet.  Johnny held the lead throughout the race and pulled off a solid win.  In the second race, Geneva dominated.  Malcolm Lamphere with crew Riley Legault from Geneva took race two with fellow Geneva sailors skipper Nathan Freytag and crew Bo Freytag right behind them.

What a drama filled morning for the Senior fleet!  Both races came down to the last few boat lengths.  The first race was won by Geneva skipper Joe Rolander (I-53) and crew Henry Rolander in a photo finish. Joe and Henry lead at the first winward mark but lost the lead to Eddie Cox (W-66) of White Bear and Kathryn Rusher (A-13) of Cedar Lake.  However Joe alone came in the starboard side at the end to take the first race.  The second race was also quite dramatic.  Kate Klement of Beulah (B-111) with crew Teresa Westin took the trophy in another exciting and close finish.  In the last 100 yards, the lead bounced between Minnetonka skipper Griffin Robillard (M-22), Kate Klement, and another Minnetonka skipper Addy Ferguson (M-67).  Kate took the race in the last few feet beating out Addy in a very close finish.
After another delicious lunch hosted at the Pewaukee Yacht Club, the sailors went out for a hopeful afternoon.  Light wind and on and off rain was all they experienced.  Both fleets cancelled racing for the day at 5 PM.

Friday evening is very eventful at the club with Champion Chicken catering the event and carnival type games on the front lawn.
Racing is scheduled for a 9:30 warning for both fleets on Saturday morning.  Let's hope the rain and storms stay away and we have some solid breeze!

Don't forget you can stay up to date with updates on Facebook for BOTH fleets.  Search '2010 X Inland' on Facebook and 'Like' the page to receive mark rounding stats as well as finishes and pictures.

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.

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.


All vehicle parking will be off site at the Stone Bank School. A shuttle service will be provided.


Absolutely no alcohol may be carried onto the club grounds. Alcohol and other beverages are available at the clubhouse.
No alcoholic beverages are allowed on the road side of the yacht club property.
