It is not the editor's intention to list everyone and, surely, there is an omission. When  you compete in the summer against our successful youth, know the efforts of Youth Development are paying off. Our sailors are returning to scows in the largest numbers ever. High school and college sailing are keeping our youth on the water. As you wind down from the 2011 Sailing Season, consider holding a fall sailing school board meeting and strategize how your club can keep your youth sailing

It all begins with Optis - your club needs a strong program to remain healthy in ten years.  Contact ILYA Commodore Rick Trester if you need help. The ILYA is here to assist you. We are as strong as our individual clubs who are creative and passionate about our sport. This is your future!

Louie's Lucky 13th Last Regatta

By Chip Mann

Here is a little inside information so that you know how easy and fun this regatta will be. Milwaukee YC will allow our scows to be launched at their crane at no cost. The MYC has a dockmaster who will be there to assist you. If you would rather ramp launch, the Milwaukee County McKinley ramp is next to MYC. There is a fee to launch at the McKinley ramp. Depending on the wind there will be someone to tow our scows out to the race course and back. I will be the harbor PRO running our races right in front of the Art Center, depending on the direction of the winds. You will find me in my familiar green boat. We will start the scows in 5 minutes increments from largest to smallest. Again, depending on the wind we will sail, 1, 2 or 3 races catering to the desires of the skippers. The big boats will be out beyond the breakwater. They sail between 90-120 minutes. We will try to get done just before they do.

There will be a barge with beer on our course. The prizes are fun. The cause is worthwhile.

The 1st warning is at 12:00 noon. I would recommend that you get to MYC around 10:00.

This will be a great opportunity to showcase our scows in front of all of those lead-belly sailors. Please talk it up among your local club members and come down as a group. It should be a real kick!

Please register as soon as possible so that I know how many scows to expect. I want to have enough equipment and race committee folks on hand to make it fun with a little competitive sailing thrown in.
