Day One Results From The I.L.Y.A. X Champs Are In!

HENRY ROLANDER LEADS JUNIOR FLEET
Article courtesy of Candace Porter – Geneva's Henry Rolander with Jake Sierakowski won race #1 and race #4. The most impressive race was the last of the day when Henry was OCS and he came back to win. It was a great day for the Menace.
Pewaukee's Robbie Lindemann and Sawyer Wozniak sailed Whale'n to the race two win. If Whale'n sounds familiar, it is because the boat has carried many Sawyer grandchildren to victory - Driscoll and Gutenkunst children have enjoyed the boat.
Finn Rowe and Hunter Sharpe took race three. The Butcher has a Geneva-Gull connection. The boat originally belonged to Harris Buddig who sailed it exceedingly well. Harris became an instructor on Gull Lake, the host club, and his boat has come back for a victory lap.

The day began with a postpone as light air had no steady direction and needed to build. The day progressed to a medium air day as both fleets sailed a total of four races. The sailors were returning to harbor at 6:00 but the four races gets them closer to the magic "six" where a throwout kicks in.
