Our '16 Olympic hopefuls this week
Delta Lloyd in the Netherlands
Silver it is!! Haeger and Provancha took advantage of a new medal round format to move into the silver medal position. These early regattas in the Olympic quadrenium test differing formats for spectator and sailor satisfaction and performance. Haeger carried 4 points into the final round after several days of sailing. Only 6 sailors were allowed to compete in the medal round. Annie and Brianna closed with a second to move them from fourth to silver at event's conclusion. 
Gordy Lamphere had a tough week with a mast break which cost him three races. Watch this video to see the calm manner in which our young sailor handled the mishap.  Click here
One All-American already
 Boston College's Stephanie Hudson has been named to the Women's All-American team. Boston College with Hudson (Beulah) and Pewaukee's Kelly Roy sailed to an overall 4th. Minnesota's team finished 16th; Wisconsin's team and Hawaii with Minnetonka's Maddy Kennedy were participating in the semifinals but did not proceed to the finals.
Team Racing Nationals
The live coverage of team racing was a primer in the discipline. Chris Love Productions provided live coverage which was exceptional. It did not, however, exceed the display of competitive team racing. It was a learning experience to watch the maneuvers.
Beulah's Colin Smith was in the finals competing for Brown. (Colin will teach the ILYA 420 clinic with our 420 Champs in Delavan.) Brown ended in third behind Yale and St. Mary's. Calhoun's Connor Corgard sailing for Roger Williams finished in seventh. Hobart William Smith with Eddie Cox (White Bear) narrowly missed the finals finishing ninth. Wisconsin's team members are not listed but they ended in a tie for eleventh with Hawaii - Maddy Kennedy (Minnetonka).  From the live coverage, we know George Kutschenreuter from Wisco was there when it was reported he had caught a fish!
Coeds begin Tuesday with many Inland sailors competing. Follow the live coverage on Livestream or the scores at

Safety reminders for your waterfront

Dock Safety Guidelines

By Steve Prime, Gowrie Group EVP and Burgee Program Expert

All yacht club officers and members want to ensure the safety of their smallest guests - children. This concern extends beyond participants of junior sailing programs and includes all young people, from the youngest toddlers up through young adults.

Over the years, the insurance and safety experts at Gowrie Group who manage The Burgee Program have worked with yacht clubs across the country to put in place a variety of effective dock and child safety

programs. In most cases, the solutions are relatively simple and inexpensive to implement. These best practices can help to prevent tragic accidents from happening. Below is a high-level list of some of the best practices we have seen clubs adopt.

Dock Safety Guidelines*

* Require all children under age 10 to wear life jackets at all times on the docks.

* Require all children under age 18, who do not swim, to wear life jackets on the docks.

* Do not allow running or roughhousing on the docks.

* Post signage at the entrance to each dock of the above requirements.

* Include the "life jacket rules" in the club's yearbook and new members guide.

* Have "loaner" life jackets available for children who do not own one or forget theirs.

* Require all children under age 12 to be supervised by a parent/guardian while on club property.

* Install safety railings that meet state codes along all bulkheads (typical requirements are no

spaces between balusters of greater than 4" apart).

* Place throw rings near each dock entrance and at regular intervals along main docks or bulkheads.

* Install child proof gates at the entrance to each main dock.

* Train all club employees to be vigilant when walking the property and docks.

*This list is by no means exhaustive and should be considered a starting point. Each club should set and publish their own safety rules and procedures specific to their club's characteristics. In addition to these practices, The Burgee Program provides all yacht clubs and sailing organizations in the insurance program a comprehensive Yacht Club Safety Manual and a Junior Sailing Safety Program. To sample the level of detail, expert advice, and practical forms that are included in these yacht club safety materials, we invite you to download complimentary excerpts from our website:
