Pewaukee is hosting a joint championships for the Melges 17s and the I-20s. They both sailed one race yesterday in what was hopeful, but developed into light, winds. The event is a joint Nationals and ILYA championship for the Melges 17s. It is refreshing to see the youth in the 17s and Hurray for Wawasee in the I-20s.
