Who could have scripted this any better? The two ILYA teams are fighting in the final four spots. The semifinals continue today with finals and petit finals to begin also today. In the best of seven, Sally Barkow is 2-1 up on Anna Tunnicliffe. Steph Roble is 2-1 up on Genny Tulloch. You are watching 4 college All-Americans - three from Old Dominion. It's a thrilling day ahead for all four.

Newcomer, neophyte and tough competitor Roble has just earned herself a spot in the next prestigious regatta in Weymouth in May. OPEN UP YOUR WALLETS! This group of Roble, Maggie Shea (from Chicago but also White Lake) and Darby Smith a southern gal just made the commitment two months ago and immediately signed up for an ILYA Foundation account. So consider a donation, no matter how small and help her on her way to train for Weymouth. The US Olympic committee provides very little support - transportation of boats essentially. Our sailors sail from YOUR donations. Click here to donate; it takes fewer than 20 seconds if you have a paypal account.  

Now for Sally --- it will be a tough battle all the way today. She faces gold medalist (Laser Radial) Anna Tunnicliffe. Both girls are seasoned. Barkow has the advantage of a seasoned crew - compared to Roble. She faces one of her last season's teammates on the Olympic Team Seven. Both Sally and Anna are Rolex Sailors of the Year. This is the epic showdown but was expected to be the finals match rather than this earlier contest. Both girls earned this honor by allowing Tulloch to win the upperhand in the first round robin. All bets are off as they proceed into the semis and later rounds. Sally has a strong support system with loyal donors but it's never enough. Click here for a Barkow donation.

Support our women with your thoughts and support. Thanks for putting us on the map! Two women fighting for an Olympic spot who live only 15 miles from each other. Congrats to Pine and Beulah fans who will be on their seats today.  
HS and then College Singlehanded Nationals 
Chicago is the site - travel down to Belmont to watch our finest sailors in the nation the next two weekends. Sailing starts today for the high schoolers - Malcolm Lamphere, Mitchell Kiss, Connor Corgard and Wheeler Morris - our Midwest representatives. Also of note is Nevin Snow who is Mary Allen Brigden's (a past ILYA X champ) son. Good luck, sailors.
This is one you can't miss - Get a cheap flight and come
 ussailinglogoPlease plan to attend 
If you are a fleet rep, a yacht club spark plug, race committee member, builder/sailmaker - you NEED to attend the US Sailing One Design Symposium. New Jersey is the site of the event where there is a hotbed of E scows and M-16s. Check out the agenda - it is exciting, stimulating and will help energize your club or fleet.  Check here for the events. The ILYA will have a presence but you are needed to represent us or to learn from others. It's a NOT-TO-BE-MISSED event. Contact Jim Smith to let him know you are going. There seem to be five concurrent sessions at time. There are two of us going thus far.
