Admiral Allen orders you to report at either Lord Fletcher's in Spring Creek, MN on May 16th or at Lake Beulah Yacht Club on Friday, May 9th. The dinner is $35 and includes two free drinks with reservations by the deadline date. Late reservation results in added fees of $5 late and $10 for the "good works" fund plus the forfeiture of one drink ticket to the thirsty Past Admirals. In addition it is time to consider those from your member club who would be appropriate candidates for induction.

UNIVERSITY OF WISCONSIN OFF TO NATIONALS
WISCO QUALIFIES FOR ALL THREE CHAMPIONSHIPS 
The spring collegiate sailing season provides universities with an opportunity to compete in three separate national events: Womens Doublehanded, Co-ed Doublehanded and Team Racing Nationals. The championships are held in Newport, RI, this year hosted by Brown and Salve Regina Universities. The NYYC site in Newport will be the center.
 
University of Wisconsin has qualified in all three events. The team racing qualification was achieved at Sheridan Shores who at the last minute offered their club due to ice on the hosting Hoofers Mendota water. Wisconsin and Notre Dame won the Midwest berths. Co-ed qualilfiers were determined at an East and West semifinal weekend. Wisconsin traveled to William Hobart Smith in NY to garner a berth. The California and NY sites had a mix of Eastern, Western and Midwestern teams with FL, Hawaii and Texas thrown in. Midwest Women's qualifiers were held this past weekend at Michigan where Wisconsin and Northwestern advanced to nationals. Loads of ILYA sailors were in attendance at all the events. Wisconsin comes off the Fall Singlehanded Nationals with both a female qualifier and male qualifier. For more information, go to collegesailing.org and look for the ILYA names of our talented sailors. You will see our sailors at Miami University of Ohio, Eckert in FL, Old Dominion University and many Midwest schools and more.
