As published on Scowlines – Sailors were greeted in the morning by WIND after two days of light and variable weather. This was the first test of the new schedule as C's entered Miller's Bay at 12:45 and A's were slated for a 2:00 start. Waterfront manager Tom Hodgson announced a "soft" start time for the afternoon as all the sailors were using ramps simultaneously. All four fleets completed two races giving E's and C's 5 races and A's 3. Thanks to Green Lake's Sue Weston for shuttling back and forth between the Waters and Millers Bay at least twice a day to post announcements at both sites.

PRO Tom Hodgson led his team in the donning of PINK to recognize cancer survivors and to remember those who battled the disease. This was particularly important to the Boat 1 team from Beulah who this week lost our matriarch of the club, Nancy Neal Norris, who is the grandmother of sailors George and Joe Kutschenreuter.

B-19 again as brother Scotty skipped the second C race of the day and led until the last beat. Scotty, a high school senior, displays the entry of many, many of our youth into the C fleet.

And the recent surge of youth emergence in the fleet is due in large part to the effort of these two sailors, Kent Haeger and Paul Reilly, along with David Porter and the Melges team. New C scows have energized this fleet in the past two years.

And what do our youth champions do? The next three photos are of our recent X Champs. Kate Cox is here also but no photo of her.
