Silverhawk wins A Nationals in strong fashion - 1-4-1-1-1

 Bilge Pullers

 Seventeen A scows descended on Pewaukee for a light air regatta. PRO Hank Stuart worked hard with his crew to successfully provide five races over the three-day event. With no sailing on Saturday, the event was a display of skill for the I-28 Silverhawk team. Owner Terry Blanchard, skipper Andy Burdick and crew Peter Keck, Joe Kutschenreuter, Jim Petersen, Ben Porter and Molly Forbes seemed untouchable and a smidge lucky on one finish. Funny how skill often translates into luck. This team has been together for many years and consistency is key for the champion boat.

Ida Lewis boasts many ILYA sailors

Bilge Pullers

"Fourteen ILYA sailors will be flying the ILYA colors on their back this coming week, Sunday through Friday!! There are 80 sailors competing in the event.  So, 17.5% of the sailors in this national event are proud to call the ILYA "home" and are ILYA members."  This report from David Ferguson who is member of the host club Minnetonka. This US Sailing championship features the best of the nation's doublehanded women youth sailors. The regatta is by invitation only. Last year, Mark Kiernan provided some teams with pinnies - covers over lifejackets - which identified our Inland girls. The backs of the pinnies display the ILYA logo and the front the sailors' individual ILYA clubs. Those young women who have participated in youth ILYA events will proudly tell the nation from whence they hail. The ILYA is proud to congratulate the following participating teams who have competed in our own junior X and Opti regattas:

Kate Cox/Rosie Hust, Annika Ekholm/Caitlin McGoldrick, Addy Ferguson/Sarah Hogg, Mary Claire Kiernan/Kelly Monahan, Kate Klement/Teresa Westin, Isabella Loosbrock/Madeleine Loosbrock and Amelia Shankwitz/Susie Voltz.

"The event is sailed in Club 420 class sailboats and is intended to encourage young American women to enhance their sailing ability. It has a strong emphasis on sportsmanship and provides the opportunity to compete in elite-level competition with guidance from high-level coaching. The national championship will be sailed by 40 teams of young women (80 total athletes) from around the country (17 teams from CA!). The weeklong agenda consists of two days of clinics for the competing sailors led by US Sailing with a team of distinguished junior and college sailing coaches, followed by the three day National Championship regatta. While visiting Minnesota, all competitors will be housed by local host families. All meals as well as activities and social events are being planned and coordinated by Lake Minnetonka Sailing School volunteers." - sent by Minnetonka, the host site.



GLSS  Extends registration deadline
   Geneva has decided to extend the early bird pricing one week because of some technical difficulties in the registration system. Please plan on coming and enjoying some great sailing on Geneva again this summer, we've got a great event planned. -- Kevin Jewett
