ILYA Invitational Regatta Deadlines

freytag nationals
First it is! Freytag is the Champ!!! Here's the team - T Freytag, Mike HIrn, Dylan Freytag, John Kivlin, Kevin Jewett, Patrick Doran and Danny James. Freytag took the title decisively. Lake Mendota was the site of the 2010 A Scow Nationals. A favorite site with all scow sailors, Mendota provides great water, a town with action for evening activities, and picturesque opportunities as in the following Pat Dunsworth photo.

Cedar, Indiana Hosts I-20 fleet
by Steve Scheck
A hot time at Cedar, IN

Eleven I-20s sailed the ILYA Invite out of Cedar Lake, IN. It was a hot time, with temperatures in the upper 80's, fairly high dew point, and 100% sunshine. Fortunately, there was wind. We did a set of back-to-backs Saturday morning with wind generally SW around 5-8 mph. There was the occasional large puff from nowhere, and of course some big holes. For the afternoon, the wind was a little more to the right, and up a few more mph. Another set of back-to-backs, and the fleet retreated to the shade at the club.

Sunday morning brought a storm bearing down on the lake, so we called it a regatta. The storm hit a few minutes after the scheduled warning signal.

Our hosts at Cedar were awesome! Many competitors were given housing, the meals were a great bargain, and many volunteers chipped in to make everything happen.

Thanks to regatta chair Pat Kardos, who also did RC duty assisting PRO Mike Sherin (thanks Mike!), and all the members of CLYC. If you've never been to Cedar, you're missing a great time.
