Steve Schmidt wins WYA


This year’s WYA was full of surprises. With great coordination from the Delavan yacht club, all boat got to dry sail the entire weekend. Yes, that means the 56 boat fleet. Friday started off promising with racing starting on time with one race being completed. The race started off with Natalie Kay, skipper of the E-3, leading the race for more than one lap. Eventually Jim Gluek caught up and took the lead for the remainder of the race. The air continued to get lighter as the race progressed and sailors sailed back to the starting line for another start. The breeze went flat and the sailors went in for lunch. No wind filled the rest of the day and sailors hung around playing frisbee and bags until racing was called. Many sailors returned to the DLYC for Friday night fish fry.

Day two was expected to start with a 9:30 warning. This proved to be a little ambitious as the lake was flat all day. Racing was called shortly after lunch since the forecast was not promising. Sailors stuck around and played more baggo, frisbee, football, and volleyball. Saturday night’s party was Mexican themed with free margaritas, pinatas, and a great band. Okauchee won the party with the most people in attendance.

Sunday’s racing started with Dave Keck port tacking the fleet. He continued on to win the race. Race 3 was sailed immediately following race 2 and was won by Steve Schmidt who ran away with the regatta winning by 11 points.

The regatta was a huge success through the generations. The young kids had a great time swimming and being active, while thee older sailors enjoyed three days of free beer.
