ILYA Champs Notes  
  • Volunteer sign up is now online. Consider spending a day with us or volunteer for the portion of the day you are not sailing. It takes nearly 400 slots over six days to execute this grand event. See signup to the left. 
  • Meal/social packages are available for those of you attending as a Sail it On Family or guests of sailors. Again, see left. Sailors, you will be directed to the store for social purchases when you register.
  • Housing, 4 - wheelers, tractors, golf carts: if you have one, contact Kristin Gannon.
  • SPONSORSHIP - never too late to be recognized or to support one of our special offerings. Contact David Perrigo
  • Thank Craig Parker (Cedar, IN) of Craig's Cantina or come and grill for the sailors one lunch. His donation of time and product is unparalleled. Use volunteer sign up.
  • A scows - if you are interested in Gage Marine for your parking area, contact Candace Porter. (Some of you have.) There are several slots left for E's also in Williams Bay. Gage is a most gracious host. It keeps you out of the traffic if you like a bit more solitude.  
  • Sail it On Families - use the July 4th holiday to get your video completed. Send to Dave Bergbut email to determine how best to accomplish that.
  • Moorings - some of you like wet sailing to avoid the crane traffic. Please register with Kristin Gannon for a special assignment.
  • Spectator boats - arrange at one of the local marinas for launching and storage of your boat.
  • Think about the car storage - one car per boat which means we are using the generous Majestic Marine for overflow during the day. Shuttles will run to bring you back to the club. You may unload each morning at the top of the hill but your car will be traveling to Majestic.
  • Softgoods will again be supplied by Gill. Plan a trip for your fall sailing needs. Gill carries a wide variety of products in addition to our regattawear. 
  • Boat registration is open here.  
TRAP X - Day 1  
by AJ Schweda
Trap Regatta 2017 Mid-Regatta Report - A17 Ali Vollmer leads after day one
Light, shifty and more shifty breeze today as the X boats sailed three races in the morning with three different winners. The winds were westerly and oscillating from 230 degrees to 325 degrees at about 6-8mph and when it shifted one way it seemed the wind would completely die off on the other side of the course.
V-88 Sam Spencer lead the way in race one and I-11 Kyle Navin taking race two as the two of them now had a first place and a third place. Race 3 saw the fleet all over the place as X-55 Joe Gehl lead the entire way to winning the race followed by V-35 Charlie Bruss and X-88 Simon Rolfs.
After a quick lunch and a briefing from the Michael Barr and all his instructors the fleet went out for more racing. 
The afternoon winds seem to start to shift more southerly only to come back to the same westerly after the race started. D30 Nathan Hetzler took the honors winning the race followed by D21 Emmet Clair and OO17 Sean Mihelich. The fifth race started and during the course of the first leg I believe everyone thought about 15 different boats might be winning the race at one point but the left side paid out in the end as A13 Charlie Eckert and V88 Sam Spencer rounded first and second. V88 Sam Spencer was barely able to get by A13 Charlie Eckert to take race five as it was a very close finish.
With possible storms and big wind tomorrow the PRO has called for a 8:30 warning for this group of 62 sailors.
