Women's/Girls Clinic - Empowered!  

"Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate.  Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure.  It is our light, not our darkness, that most frightens us.  We ask ourselves, who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented and fabulous?  Actually, who are you not to be? Your playing small doesn't serve the world. There's nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won't feel insecure around you.  We were born to manifest the light within us.  It's not just in some of us; it's in everyone.  And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same.  As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others." --- Marianne Williamson as edited and adapted for Sail Strong, Sail Pink by Mary Anne Ward

Thirty-five young girls and women learned the sense of "Fearlessness", the topic of Mary Anne Ward's keynote address at the first annual ILYA Sail Strong, Sail Pink clinic held on Lake Beulah. The yacht club was decked out in pink from the welcoming banner (thanks to Mark and Kathy Kiernan) featuring our eleven sponsors who contributed $11,500, tablecloths, tech shirts and breast cancer prevention specialist. Add an early morning Boot Camp on Friday morning by our own Lesa Gutenkunst, a 20-minute presentation on prevention of breast and ovarian cancer and served lunches on china, this was a regatta unlike any other. Women from IA, MN, IL, WA, RI and WI gathered to celebrate the sport of sailing and the empowerment they gained from learning to control a boat they all wish to enjoy. Thanks to twelve instructors, many of whom gave up two days of vacation, to make this experience a success for the participants. The vision was coined by Lake Beulah's Nancy Roble

. . . Empower girls and young women with confidence through the sport of sailing & support breast cancer research

From there Mary Berg, a high-schooler, challenged us to add service and leadership to the components of a regatta and $2500 later to Breast Cancer Research Foundation (Estee Lauder connection), it was a one-of -a-kind two days.

"I wanted to extend a big thank you for putting so much work into the women's clinic this week.  By the end, I really felt empowered, which is what I believe the point was" - Kate McMurray

"I wanted to thank you all for a wonderful Sail Strong Sail Pink Event. This event is off to a very strong beginning! What a wonderful way to celebrate women and girls in the ILYA.  Mary Ann Ward was an amazing speaker and her topic of fear was spot on.  The Bright Pink speaker was great for all ages of girls and women. Thank you for including me as a Table Host, I was truly honored.  I am so proud to call you my friends.  This is the beginning of such a lasting positive legacy for all women in the ILYA." - Sharon Garber

"Thank you for including me in the Sail Pink event. I was personally overwhelmed by your glowing introduction of me. Wow thanks! I am sure you impacted a lot of young women at the event and beyond, and I know they will incorporate much of the positive encouragement and confidence building activities into their lives. It was great interacting with everyone at my table. What an exciting time to be a female in the USA! I enjoyed Mary Ann Ward's presentation as a role model for fearlessness and tenacity" Sarah Lamphere

The quotes above indicate the sentiments after the event. The event was possible only due to generosity of our members who donated boats and time. Several of our younger women gave more than can be expressed; Vicki Clayton, Anne Muller, Christine Porter, Katie Porter Murphy, Annie Kate Haeger were joined by Nagawicka's Sharon Kraklow, Delavan's Rachel Beers,  Long Lake's Suzanne Reese, Geneva's Meg Six and Seattle's Mary Anne Ward for two long days of teaching, encouraging and mentoring women in Cs and MCs. From stepping masts, driving the trailer, launching the boat, sail prep and THEN on the water instruction, this sacrifice of time for the sport we love was unparalleled. Add Steph Roble, Andrea Jarecki and Bridgette Bonifield and Kelly Reese Hirn who managed family, work and teaching for a day - it was this volunteerism that made the event the success it was.

Our sponsors jumped on board early and sponsorship money continued to flow in up to the days of the event. In particular, thank you to the Windhover Foundation who committed early which made this event a "go". Elizabeth Harned brought her two daughters but also her example of a strong role model for women in sailing. While raising a family (and son Will won a Green fleet race on Monday at the LBSS Opti event), working feverishly in her family's business, she sets the tone for all our women by actively sailing an E scow, Melges 20 or 24. She boasts the happiest crew of husband Chris and Olli Luebker and others; sails often with a pink spinnaker but, above all, shows us women can continue to enjoy and succeed in this sport we all love. She can be heard encouraging her peers to return to the sport. Thank you to the entire Quadracci Family for supporting our women in sailing.    

The Friday regatta featured a team approach including the combined scores of Optis, X's, C's and MC's. Many women have never sailed an afternoon, let alone sail in a regatta on their second day of sailing. The winning team primarily from Geneva and Delavan proudly display the perpetual trophy. If you look close you can see a few Beulah gals mixed in.

This weekend - WI MC Championships  
 
ILYA Foundation is Proud to Grant X Support  
Bring back the X -- 125 years on White Bear
The Quest for the X!
The Quest for the X!
Enjoy the excitement of White Bear. There are a reported four new boats to add to the recent Cox and Crary legacy. White Bear will receive partial funding from the Foundation. 

If your club is interested in future consideration, this is the year to speak to someone from the Foundation or ask for a visit from a few of us. Get your Opti fleet developed so you are positioned to grow into X's on your lake. Why X boats? With over 10 X regattas throughout the Inland lakes and a championship with over 100 boats, it is the boat that links all our families together. If you sailed as a youth in the Inland, you will inevitably meet old friends at an X event. Many of our clubs have most active 420 sailing spring and fall but the X dominates the summer. The X boat ownership model most closely resembles our adult scow model. Ask for a visit from the Foundation, X committee or Promotion Committee. Someone will visit your club.

This caught our eye as good info but then #3 appeared. So load up on the fruit at breakfast and lunch and, really, the return of jello? Maybe just simplify it with sunscreen.
