Youth Regattas in July

 Smyussailinglogothe/Bemis/ Sears

 Competition was tough in all three disciplines for the August championships in these prestigious US Sailing events. In the triplehanded event White Bear's Eddie Cox was second and Minnetonka's Andres Eckholm was third. The Sears finalist will be Chicago's Will Holz who is no stranger to ILYA sailing.

On the doublehanded side, Minnetonka's Ben Garber with Sarah Hogg and LaBelle's/Pine's Parker Trepton and Charlie Hollister will represent the Area K. Twelve of the 26 teams competing were from ILYA member clubs.

Pewaukee's Augie Dale will travel as the Smythe singlehanded competitor. Traveling with Augie will be Minnetonka's Isabella Loosbrock.


Leiter Cup 

Up next in US Sailing events is the women's singlehanded youth event. Sailing in Chicago, our Midwest friends will compete together beginning July 9th. This regatta is by invitation only. Mary Claire Kiernan, Addy Ferguson, Isabella Loosbrock will compete for the ILYA.

ILYA Invitationals

I-20 Invite and Melges 17 Champs - Pewaukee welcomes both fleets this weekend. The Melges 17 boasts as many youth sailors as adult skippers. Now that's a fleet with potential. The I-20 fleet brings a variety of our clubs togehter - Neenah-Nodaway, Fond du Lac, Wauwasee, Oshkosh, Minnetonka snd Mendota.

E Invite - Never been to Gull? the "extra" miles up north are worth every second - and an easy drive. This is beautiful country with folks who give you the warmest welcome. If you go once, you will have to return. There are thirty pre-registered. It's not too late!

MC Invite - Twenty-six pre-registered but only one from SE WI. Your northern friends travel down here regularly so pack the boat and head up to new water - old feel for the drive but a part of Minnetonka you have not sailed. Support your fleet and enjoy the MC! You can always drop your wife at Mall of America for a couple days of shopping.

C Invite - the schedule of Thursday, Friday, Saturday allows the best sailing on Geneva. C dads, with any luck you can only miss one race on Saturday so you can watch your young sailor at WYA. Registration is low --register now so Geneva can plan.  

Chicago Match Racing -- Join them next weekend
