Collegiate Nationals nears - May 25th start
Qualifying continues and look for our girls to be well represented. That event will commence May 25th with an initial qualifying for finals which conclude May 29th. The Lake Beulah Women's Banquet will be May 29th at the Union. At least Steph Roble of ODU will sail the co-ed portion of the event which follows next. Steph qualified this weekend at the Western Semis. Boston College won the Eastern Qualifiers but due to high consistent wind, Anne Haeger was on the sidelines while the heavier boys took over. The Co-ed section will be the concluding event with a banquet on June 3rd in Great Hall at the Union. Tickets are on sail for all the banquets on the UW Sailing Team website. Team racing final qualification rounds are this coming weekend. The event can be observed from the Union Terrace. Bring your high school students to observe or just come to watch the nation's best. Gary Jobson will be in town to host for ESPN. For event details, click here

Coral Reef Sailing Apparel has Gill on sale this week. There are some clearance items in youth sizes. Mention  Collegiate Nationals when you order. The Collegiate Nationals embroidered items are also posted.

Naming rights to one last boat are still available. Join the likes of the Schmidt Family of Cedar, North Sails, and Lake Beulah to have your name on the transom of a boat. There is only one boat left. Add to your current donation level or come in as a new donor for a $4000 donation.

It's not too late to support the Badger sailing team and the 2010 Collegiate Championships.  The Badgers and Hoofers have a fundraising goal of $40,000 to purchase equipment and provide 1st rate ILYA hospitality to visiting college sailors and their fans from around the country.  This is our time to shine. Contact UW and Inland sailors Christine Porter (Beulah) and Leif Evensen (LaBelle) for more details.  Or click "Donate" to add your support.
