In Memoriam
Michele Hodgson
 
Farewell to Thee! But not farewell
To all my fondest thoughts of Thee;
Within my heart they still shall dwell
And they shall cheer and comfort me.
Life seems more sweet that Thou didst live
And men more true Thou wert one;
Nothing is lost that Thou didst give,
Nothing destroyed that Thou hast done.
-------Anne Bronte
 
Tom Hodgson expresses his gratitude for all the kind thoughts he has received. He asks for private time now. There will be a service Wednesday, May 17th in St. Paul on Harriet Island pavilion on the river in downtown St. Paul.

 Sponsorship
The Executive Committee meets shortly to set the social pricing which is based on the sponsorship money. Your donation is ALWAYS welcome right up to the start of the event but a commitment today assists with improved pricing to the sailors. Consider a title sponsorship, general donation or any other support to the last of three great years of the ILYA Championships at the Buddy Melges Sailing Center at Lake Geneva Yacht Club. Contact David Perrigo to offer sponsorship.
 
 
Sailing Schools , Instructors -- Sign up now. Madison is cancelled!  
Early classes are filling FAST
Chicago YC is full; Oshkosh has a waiting list. Level One at Macatawa Yacht Club in Michigan June 2-5, it has five openings, and a Level 2 at Macatawa June 7-8, that course has only one opening. Whitehall Yacht Club (30 miles up the coast) for a Level 2 June 10-11, nine open spots and a Level 3 June 12 - 13 with 10 openings. Macatawa is 150 miles from Chicago, both clubs would house candidates if asked.  

If you have sailing instructors who are not certified, please, please consider this course. In particular, look for Cappy Capper who has been a member of the national team developing this curriculum for years. He has instructed for over 30 years in both sailing and skiing. He is exceptional. Our young instructors are often great sailors but need assistance with administrative skills, organizational skills, presentation and safety concerns. This is the course for them. 

It may be during some school days but what they learn here will instill good preparation for communicating for that next interview or job opportunity. They video each other and critique each other in a most unthreatening manner. Lots to be learned here. 

Here is the link to US Sailing to get registered. Or go the US Sailing website, education, course calendar to find your desired information.
