The ILYA Laser and 420 Champs are the last weekend of June. With fireworks, State St. restaurants, Union Terrace viewing for the parents, how can you go wrong? The University of Wisconsin Sailing Team and the Hoofers Sailing Club will be hosting the ILYA Youth Champs in Madison, WI the weekend of June 28-29, 2008.  Dorm room registration has been sufficient to allow us to reserve rooms on the lakeshore. This is the same site as last year, with so much of the same great fun:

- Fantastic competition of all ages from all across the Midwest (25 and under)
- Rhythm and Booms Festival all around Madison
- Three meals, including Friday evening social with the entire sailing club
- Great ILYA Race Committee
- Still only $30 for each sailor

But we've also added some new perks to make it more fun and easier to navigate in Madison.

- To ease space concerns at Hoofers, we'll be launching all Lasers from the Porter Boathouse (home to UW Rowing). 
- We're offering dorm housing for just $15/night in UW's Lakeshore Dorms with only a 1 min walk from the Laser launching site and only 10 min walk form Hoofers (Regatta HQ)
- There will be volunteers at the Regatta HQ to help parents and solo sailors with loading and unloading with valet parking in FREE lots for those who need it.

All regatta information can be found at the UW Sailing Team's website at There is extensive sailing, housing, and regatta information and an awesome map to help you navigate around Madison.
ilyaburgeeIt is time to begin registering for ILYA regattas. There is a late fee so save money now. You will note there is a youth rate and regular rate for the events. All youth (25 and under) qualify for a 50% discount.
There are no invites for the M 16 and I 20 classes at the fleets' request. The early deadline for Youth Champs is June 14, MC and E Invite June 27th, A Open, Melges 17 and C Invite July 5th, X Champs July 10th, Opti No Tears East, West and Champs July 15th. All Okoboji Champs have a deadline of July 25th
