ILYA Lake Geneva Championship - No Wind - Again!
13 August 2010
Summer 2010 - the Midwest is nearly unrecognizable. We begin the ILYA Champs with the ubiquitous NO SAILING DAY. We follow in the footsteps of X and Opti where someone forgot to turn on the switch. However, it seems we will gain two more boats due to our delay. Seems the Abbey had booming business and it did not dampen the spirits of the sailors. Note, reference to spirits.The Lynchmobile is cruising every afernoon with a half barrel of beer. Look for your favorite Geneva sailors driving the Lynch donation.
Perhaps the most thankless and most time-consuming job thus far has been the tireless service of ILYA measurer Dave Schmidt
The evening festivities began despite the lack of sailing. But Mexican it was with sailor Paul Wood providing the entertainment.
