Each weekend, take time to visit both the college and high school websites to follow the results of our youth in the off-scow season. Our midwest high schoolers are on the water every weekend traveling MN - WI - IL with occasional end of season distance traveling. I personally could not be happier than seeing the crews on these boats. It's crew work in the 420 that makes champions. So, here's to the Frentzel family - with grandpa newly instructed on retrieving emails.
or the results of the Pewaukee event this weekend. To see who sailed the event, find Division A and Division B on the top bar. The winning team, although no photo, is full of Lake Geneva sailors. The Davies and Belsley families had quite a showing this weekend. ABove is the Arrowhead team with loads of familiar names and faces. Below is Kettle Moraine who finished third behind Arrowhead. The Minnesota teams are familiar to us all also.

Singlehanded nationals is nearing. It's great to see the next quadrenniums Olympians vying for the title. Geneva's Malcolm Lamphere, this year's MC ILYA Champion, qualified from the deep, deep northeast qualifier. Leslie Poole will compete in the women's division representing Wisconsin. The Nationals will be contested at Old Dominion University.
But singlehandeds is not close to the only game in town. WEekend after weekend, doublehanded and team racing events bring our Midwest sailors to Midwestern and Eastern waters. Check collegesailing.org to see all the names of our youth busy representing their universities and bringing pride to our local member clubs. Here is just a sample of results two weeks ago:
Thanks to Dana Rolander for the composite scores.
This past weekend, Eddie Cox, Mary Claire Kiernan, Addy Ferguson, Leslie Poole, Kate Klement, Scotty Sullivan and many others make the news. Check each week for your lake's college and high school sailors.
