roblesweden  Beats the World's Best

It took five races in the finals and one of those wins was by inches. But the ILYA Foundation member is proving her mettle and wearing our colors proudly. Her crew changes from event to event depending on the type of boat used in the particular matchracing event but the one constant is White Lake's Maggie Shea. Both women work at the Chicago Matchracing Center.
Congrats to the Epic Racing Team!

An Invitational? You are invited!!!
   MC, E, C Invites are Open to All         
The name of the regatta may be a misnomer but, believe us, all are eligible to compete at ILYA Invitationals. Your home club does NOT have to be a member of the Inland. Individual sailors do need to be members. We welcome sailors from non-member clubs but we will be promoting our fine organization by issuing Scowlines and Scowslants to everyone who participates in one of our regattas.
The numbers are low for the Delavan MC Invite. Only one youth sailor has registered and the fee is cut in half for our young sailors. Offer your boat to a youth sailor if you are not planning to attend. But better yet, load the boat on the trailer and we will help you set the mast, put the boat in the water and moor in safe harbor. We welcome you all.
The E Invite will be at 40 on Pewaukee this weekend. What a site the asymmetrical spinnakers will be traveling down the lake.
The C's travel to Okauchee the following weekend. Those Okauchee boys are great sailors and the names are in the history books - Schmidt, Henschel, Smith, Prange, Pinahs --- the young names may take it all. Try to beat Tarmann. Rumor has it Mr. Zea will buy his son a new boat with a win. It's all in fun and the Beulah team wants to take the title. Come and enjoy the hospitality on Okauchee.
