ILYA News  
X Boat Website Announced
The ILYA Promotions Committee and the X-Boat Committee have been hard at work creating XBOAT.ORG - our new website dedicated to all things X-Boat.   This will be your go-to resource for instruction, regatta info, results, photos, videos and more.  If you have an X-Boat question it should be answered right here.  For parents, relatives and friends of X-Boaters this is the place to come to see the exciting way that your daughters and sons, friends, nieces and nephews spend their summers and beyond.
The X-Boat class is our gateway into scow racing.  X-Boaters go on to sail (and currently sail) As, Es, Cs, MCs, 420s, M17s, I20s and beyond.  The X-Boat class provides the basis for friendships, both for participants and parents, which will last forever, a true pillar of why the ILYA continues to be so successful as an organization.
You can also follow X-Boat news, pictures and results on Instagram and Twitter @Ilya_X_Boat.  
Come check us out!  Don't forget our major ILYA Twitter site @ILYAScows
If you have any questions please don't hesitate to reach out to Dave Berg - dberg@ilya.org , Ted Rolfs -tedrolfs@redtopcapital.com or A.J. Schweda -aj@teamspreader.com
