I-20 Nationals hit Lake Wawasee


Have you met the Bolles brothers? No coincidence that it reminds you of the Blues Brothers. They sure know how to have fun and are just a great family. Lots of them also. The Bolles family invites you to the I-20 Nationals this week at Wawasee.
The I-20 National Championship is rapidly approaching, as the fleet will invade the waters of Lake Wawasee, IN for the first time on September 18th, 19th, and 20th.  The event will be first class all the way, and registration includes two t-shirts, two dinners Friday and Saturday, and two lunches on Saturday and Sunday.  That's great racing, trophies, t-shirts, and a whopping 8 meals for just $165.  NOR and registration forms can be found on the I-20 Website here.
Plenty of housing is available around the lake, please contact Justin Bolles at with any questions.

Can you help find this boat?
I have been trying to find information on the Taft Flying T Catamaran. I think it was a 1970's manufacturer from Rice Lake Wisconsin, but cannot find anything out for sure. Does anyone in your organization have any information on this 16' Cat?
Any information or help in finding some would be greatly appreciated. Thanking you in advance.

Pewaukee Offers Fall Program
 by Fred Miller
The PLSS and the Milwaukee Youth Sailing Team will be teaming up this fall to provide HS and Youth sailing opportunities in the greater Milwaukee and the Lake Country areas. Monday evenings are at the Milwaukee Yacht Club and Wednesday evenings are at the Pewaukee Yacht Club, with every Thursday a rotating race day at each club. Kevin Jewett, one of the area's premier dinghy sailors and coaches will be coaching on Wednesday at the Pewaukee Yacht Club. Please see the website for further details. Practice starts August 24th and runs through October 29th.
The Milwaukee Youth Sailing Team (MYST) was formed to provide area sailors with the resources necessary to broaden their sailing horizons. The goal is to build upon the foundation laid by our outstanding junior sailing school. To further this tradition, an effort is being made to offer our best young sailors the opportunity to hone their skills against the finest youth sailors in North America. The best way to improve is to practice hard, train at the best clinics and race against top competition. The Milwaukee Youth Sailing Team program will give our young sailors the chance to do just that! We are committed to providing a level of support that many other youth sailors in the country already enjoy.
