Mary Claire Kiernan Named Honorable Mention Women's College All-American  
College Nationals Report
Great days for Mary Claire Kiernan as she earned All-American Honorable Mention honors for a great senior year sailing for Tufts. Malcolm Lamphere led his Yale team to a second place finish in Team Racing. Griffin Rolander had the regatta of his life, leading A division, for a couple days. All the ILYA qualifiers represented us well, their parents had a reunion and it isn't any better than college sailing. Congrats to all our sailors. 
Malcomn Lamphere (Geneva - Yale), Kate Klement (Beulah-Wisconsin, Griffin Rolander (Geneva - Tufts), Annika Ekholm (Minnetonka - Fordham), Addy Ferguson (Minnetonka - Fordham) 
MIR C Regatta at Long Lake, IL  
It's been a while - Come and enjoy a new lake
You have played pranks on those Madden boys, sailed with them, partied with them - go visit their house this weekend. The parties should be legendary. When have you known the Long Lake sailors to not show you a good time. Regatta Chair, Wes Mottlau, promises an all-out effort from Long Lake. They are excited. It will be like sailing in the old days. A five-race regatta on a shifty smaller lake. Races run the old-fashioned way with local folks working hard. 

The June Party will take place at the Kercher residence during the MIR on Saturday, June 10, 2017 following the races. Cost for the Party is $15 dollars per person and kids 10 and under are free.
Lunches will also be served on Saturday and Sunday for $8 per person and again kids 10 and under are free.

Let Wes know you are coming. One day or two - let's show up for Long Lake. 
Sail Strong, Sail Pink  
White Bear and Cedar, WI 

It's that time again. White Bear is first June 28-29. Maggie Shea and Steph Roble will be the keynote instructors and speakers. They both bring experience Opti to adult. They are a "can't be missed" team. Their humility, kindness and competitive grit (yet with a perspective) will impress women of all walks of life. The real story to take away is how they deal with mistakes, adversity and turn that into a coachable improvement for the next event. They believe in teamwork in all aspects of life. They are a delight to hear for an evening banquet or for two days of sailing. 

Here is the link for more info. 

Cedar, WI follows in July, the 12th and 13th - right after GLSS so if you do not have a chance to attend up North, come to Geneva and tag onto that great event with the Women and Girls' Clinic. It doesn't get any better than Sally Barkow. A home grown talent who is a celebrity now due to her around the world race, her matchracing and Olympic quest. She motivates people wherever she goes. Now her time is consumed with Team Magenta - teaching women and girls the world around about sailing, leadership and confidence.
