Paul Reilly wins WYA


54 boats traveled to Okauchee Lake to compete in this year’s WYA regatta. Staying behind the starting like was the key as the black flag comes out after on general recall in WYA rules. 3 of the four races had sailors penalized for starting early.

Race 1 had beautiful breeze early on and the Keck brothers (N-181) sailed flawlessly to victory. The afternoon brought a line of storms and when they passed the fleet hit the water again to sail race number 2 in some rainy conditions. Tom Frenzel (V-70) sailed to victory in race 2 sailing smart in the light conditions.

Race 3 was sailed on Saturday morning with good breeze and a new wind direction. Alex Kay (E-8) and Ryan Grosch (N-47) duked it out and in the end, Alex prevailed after an exciting tacking duel. Race 4 was once again light but regatta winner Paul Reilly understood the breeze and won race 4.
