 Lake Forest, Minnetonka and Oconomowoc
 Our three Midwest qualifiers attended the national event on a cold, windy, miserable Chicago weekend. Wind on Saturday varied from light upon arrival to gusts of 28 knots by the afternoon. Windchills in the 30s was Sunday's fare. And think about the sailors from TX and CA! Malcolm Lamphere of Lake Geneva was 5th in the A division while his team placed an overall 7th but was as high as 3rd at one point. Minnetonka placed 16th overall with a race win by their A team - can't tell if it was Jack Bitney or Isabella Loosbrock. Tonka finished overall in 16th. Oconomowoc was 19th.

Congrats to our sailors. A local note is coach Marek (Lindsay Allen) Valasek coaching the TX team which featured one of our Opti sailors from last week, Dane Byerly who as a freshman finished 8th in Bs.

May Madness  - Yes, they sailed in the Wind

maymadnesstipoverby Robin Dale

It was truly May Madness. Sixteen schools took to Pewaukee Lake Saturday morning and winds were a pleasant 15 mph from the east. A Division was at the leeward mark when May Madness really hit. Within five seconds, the winds swung to the north and ramped up to 35+mph with gusts significantly over that. The entire field of 420s were wiped out. Every single boat went over. Unlucky 13 is shown above in full distress.  Fortunately, everyone eventually made it back to shore and the 420s had minimal damage. However, the wind did not let up for the rest of the afternoon and the fleet retired for the day. Sunday saw winds of a steady 20-25mph with gusts over 30mph, but much more steady than the previous day and flotation panels a requirement. Three full rotations were sailed. This regatta, with schools from Illinois, Minnesota, and Wisconsin, boasted over 25 ILYA sailors. A true testament to the growing interest in the 420 fleet. At the end, the A Division was won Arrowhead by Augie Dale (Pewaukee) and Gavin Burkhart (North Lake) and B Division by Arrowhead/Oconomowoc by Kelly Monahan (Nagawicka) and Owen Bradley. Overall combined A and B found Walter Payton High School in Illinois in first, second went to Mahtomedi/White Bear with skippers Willy Crary (White Bear) and Kate Cox (White Bear), and third over all to Arrowhead Oconomowoc with Monahan, Bradley, and Trevor Trepton (La Belle). Great sailing to all and a special shout-out to the PROs - Mary Carroll and Mark Deguire.

Editors note: While including scores from an entire roster of a regatta is not our custom, look at the names from this event. ILYA name after ILYA name. This is an open event which means sailors can combine schools to compete. The number in the far left column is the overall finish. The second column is the A sailor with his/her finish within the A fleet; third column is the B team with the finish within the B division. We can all be proud of the work done in the past decade to keep our youth sailing. Watch this summer as you see the increasing numbers of youth converting to our scow fleets.

Cedar, WI C and MC - well fun time chatting
Tipovers, tipovers, tipovers         
It seems weather this weekend was brutal but the farther north you traveled, the more challenging the conditions became. Cs and MCs showed up at Cedar although a few boats read the tea leaves properly and cancelled on Friday. PRO Chip Mann attempted to race but needed to abandon racing on Saturday at what would have been a near finish --- if there had been more boats to finish! Sunday conditions prohibited even making an attempt. But no complaints from the sailors - it's always a good time at Cedar.
MIR C - no longer an Invitational
All are welcome - June 8-9         
The MIR used to be a few southern lakes who gathered in early June. Wonder Lake, North Lake, Beulah, Delavan, Browns were the core group. It's all OPEN now. Beulah is small and fun. They boast a large fleet but it is young. Our total this year is 28 and we only know of two who will not be in town. We have two new boats right out of X boats. We have at least four of the 2013 new Melges C boats so come to see those. Travel on over and encourage your youth to attend. Housing is available on a first come basis.
By the way, we have some old guys too and I wouldn't count them out. They have a way of knowing the tricks of Beulah.  
Friday night is open at the club - see you Friday or Saturday morning.
College bound?
Where are you going?
