Letter from the Commodore

Dear NLYC members,

Congratulations to Peter Keck and his crew Ben Porter for winning not only the ILYA C boat Invitational Regatta on our lake in July but also winning the ILYA Championship Regatta on Lake Geneva, which took place August 17-21!  Well done, Peter and Ben.  

We congratulate Kaeli Bohman/ Rayray Kaminski, Matt Nigel/Jax  Kaminski and Bri Bohman/Kenyon Rasmussen for outstanding regatta finishes and for sailing in the Class X Blue Chip (regatta of champions).  Also, congratulations to Arden Michels, Connor Pingel and Lilly Wolf for doing very well in Opti regattas.

Sailing school had their Awards dinner August 8 with many kids and parents attending.  We had a record number of children who learned to sail or improved their racing skills this summer and quite a few who participated in youth regattas.  

I have been asked to remind our members of some club rules/protocol about use of the facilities and piers.  

- Children under 5 years of age MUST wear a life jacket when on club property.  

- Guests must be accompanied by a member and should not be at the club otherwise.  

- When sailing school is in session, especially during the Opti classes, boaters should avoid being near and not tie up at the north pier.  Swimmers should stay out of the way of boats returning to the piers and should probably get out of the water or swim inside the “L” of the south pier.  Many of the beginners are not yet skilled enough to avoid obstacles like people in the water.  Use common sense.

- The ramp in front of the club is for our Optis and kayak/paddle boarders.  Please be considerate when the little kids are putting their boats in or out or classes are being held.

- Club rentals have been more frequent this year.  Renters, club members ARE allowed to use the club/property during your rental time and members should be considerate of whoever is renting the facilities.

Although summer is drawing to a close, we still have several events to experience, including:

  • Our regularly scheduled club races continue through Labor Day.
  • The Annual Meeting is Sunday, September 4, followed by a meal.  All members are invited and each membership is allowed one vote.  We will be sending out reports by email prior to the meeting for your review and summarizing them at the meeting.  Important business of the club will be discussed and new Board members will be elected at this meeting.
  • The Fall Classic MC regatta will be September 17 & 18.  The Oktoberfest regatta is October 8 & 9.  Watch for notice of opportunities to volunteer.
  • The Trophy Banquet will be September 24.

And there is more.  Check your calendar and watch for announcements in your email.

Enjoy the rest of the summer,
Sharon Kraklow

Opti No Tears

On July 25th, our Opti racers were on Lake Beulah.   Connor took 3rd in the Junior Fleet, Lilly took 4th in the Senior Fleet.   Coach Marge gave them great pointers on how to sail on Beulah, since that is where she grew up racing.  

Welcome to Nagawicka Lake Yacht Club!
