E Nationals

After a slow start by ILYA sailors, the Inland took the top three spots. Andy Burdick, Toby Sutherland, Jim Gluek and Deb Ziegler left Lake Chautauqua, NY with top honors. They were followed by Brian Porter's Full Throttle and Sam Rogers.  Tom Burton was 7th and Derek Packard 10th. That's three Minnetonka and two Genevas. Six races over three days allowed our sailors to come to the forefront. Burdick began with a 6-7; Porter a couple of Z flag penalties and a 30 and then Rogers in the teens. Porter bounced back with three bullets; Rogers had a 4-3-2 in the final four races. Burdick ended the event with a 6-7-6-3-3 - DNF. A throwout favored our local sailors. Full results here. 

MC George Dorn

 36 boats enjoyed two great days of steady wind for four races. John Porter jumped into an MC for the first time this season and found a groove. Beulah uses the "spread the weath" philosophy in the presentation of awards. Dick Wise, 82, was presented with the top Ancient Mariner award; Hardy Will, top megamaster; Bill Biersach top grand master; Rob Ritter, top Master

Two of our youth declare intention to compete 

 The ILYA Foundation is proud to accept Anne Kate Haeger and Erik Bowers as the newest Olympic hopefuls. Anne Haeger is a recent Boston College graduate. She was the top singlehanded female sailor three times while at BC. She was female college sailor of the year in her junior year. She was a women's All-American four times and was also recognized in the Co-ed All American roster. She was an ILYA X Champ. Anne will train this year in a 470 with her BC teammate Briana Provancha. Her team name is Haeger - Provancha.


Josh Adams, new Olympic director for US Sailing, has sent the ILYA a letter indicating Erik Bowers acceptance as a 2016 hopeful. Erik attended College of Charleston. He has traveled on the Grand Prix Laser Circuit. He has competed at the ILYA level in E's. His 2012 resume includes:

  1. 1st Place--Laser National Championship (Houston, TX)
  2. 2nd Place--US Sailing O'Day Singlehanded National Championship (Sheboygan, WI)
  3. 5th Place--Laser North American Championship (Cascade Lochs, OR)
  4. 5th Place--CORK (Kingston, Ontario)

To donate to either or both of these outstanding youth, click the "donate" button to the left. These sailors will require extensive funding this first year for traveling and coaching expenses. Donations are charitable to the 501(c)(3) ILYA Foundation.
