Thanks from Katie Arvesen, Gull Lake - MC 2669
Dear Candace and All Lake Beulah Volunteers,
Thanks so much for a great MC Invite. The racing was a good challenge and the entire fleet was competitive! Wonderful food, welcoming club, amazing volunteers! You have the correct formula on Beulah. Thanks so much! ----- Rec'd 8/7/17.


When not sailing, sometimes we find other ways to enjoy the lake

Commodore's Ball Held at LBYC

Haeger and Greeson Win WYA C Regatta

Kent wins "once a decade" but this time it was decisive. The four-race event was tough wind conditions: Friday cold and breezy, Saturday - light and shifty and Sunday - non-existent. Kent conquered them all. He won race 4 and totaled 16 points in the end. Will and new member Will Hutchings took third. Michael Barr and George Kiernan won race one. 


Izzy Rietz/Callie Smith; Jonah Boykin/Chandler Jarecki and Brigit Barr/Caroline LeRoy all win races at ILYA X boat Championships
ILYA Champs ended Saturday with Beulah's Jonah Boykin taking the last race trophy of the event. Jonah's sailing brought him up to a final fifth place finish in the junior fleet. Augie Jarecki/Billy Webber/Ashley Mueller sailed impressively the last day to improve their position to ninth. In the senior fleet, Brigit Barr kept the boys thinking and won the top female trophy. She has traveled through this fleet and consistently been at the top through her last four years. She culminates her X career with only the finest of performances. She finished the event in fourth behind the most tightly contested regatta in years. Ryan Komas/Brian Zettlemoyer also retire from the fleet with a strong ninth place finish. Annie Cate Schmidt finished strong in today's race to gain an overall 15th. MOST IMPORTANTLY BEULAH WON VOLLEYBALL.

While the sailors change, race committee from year to year remains stable. Dale and Nancy Roble and Candace Porter have worked the junior fleet (we missed Julie this year) for over ten years. The pink attire is donned by the junior fleet RC to honor those or to remember those fighting breast cancer. The initial year, five moms were valiently fighting the disease. Each year we continue the tradition. This one is for our special heroine.

Congratulations to C Fleet and Steph Roble
In a flash fundraiser, the LBYC C fleet donated $12,400 to the Roble-Shea Olympic campaign. Thanks to Steph for the brief presentation on her aspirations for Tokyo; thanks to Joe Sko for the great idea and thanks to the most generous C fleet and Roble supporters for the nice kick-start to 2020. Don't miss your opportunity to support a future Beulah Olympian by visiting ILYA.org or view your next Scowlines.
Facts to know:

  • $1M total budget for 4 years
  • Sails are used at most for three big events at $3500 a set
  • Europe at least three times a year
  • Boat in US, boat in Japan and boat in Europe to "save" on shipping boat in container
  • Steph needs to eat 3500-4000 cal per day and ten colors of food. 

Join your Beulah friends who are supporting our sailor.

Green Fleet Results
Red, White, Blue Results
Beulah A sailors 8th and 10th; Kubicek 9th MC
Minnetonka and Nagawicka lakes proved quite a windy challenge for our sailors. Winds 15-20 and perhaps more at Minnetonka caused tipovers, bent masts but our sailors finished strong. Scotty Sullivan, Michael Barr, David and John Porter finished 8th in the 21 - boat A Nationals event. The Red Eye finished 10th with Dave Davenport, Peter Keck, Anne Muller, Ben Porter, Joe Skotarzak, Jim Kutsch and Andrew Bohl. Tender driver Ron Jarecki reports he was driving the motorboat 25mph to just keep up with the behometh 40-foot A scows. 

Meanwhile on Nagawicka at the WI MC Champs, Chris Kubicek turned out to the sole Beulah sailor. He learned rapidly what an asset daughter Sarah really is. She sailed 4 of the 5 races with Chris to an impressive 9th place finish in the 30-boat fleet. 


It's off to A Nationals and WI MC Champs
When the race courses look light this weekend, it's because many of our C boaters are at Minnetonka for the A Scow Nationals. Watch the results on two boats - I-333, the Redeye, and I-96, White Magic. The Redeye is known as the Beulah A boat. They are the defending champions but look for stiff, stiff competition this year
On the Redeye are Dave Davenport, owner, Peter Keck, Joe Skotarzak, Ben Porter, Andrew Bohl, Anne Porter Muller, Jim Kutschenreuter and Ron Jarecki as tender driver. On White Magic are David Porter, John Porter, Scotty Sullivan and Michael Barr. Racing concludes on Sunday.

Al Haeger and Chris Kubicek will compete at Nagawicka for the WI MC Champs. Candace Porter will serve on RC. 


C Nationals has 3 Beulah Boats in the top 10 and two race winners

Well, it finally happened. Will Haeger beat Kent in Nationals. Will finished 4th, Charlie Kutsch 7th, and Kent Haeger 10th. Joe Sko and Anne Muller won race 4, and Michael and Cullen Barr won Race 2 (the last race sailed). Full results Here

Kent Haeger and Mike Greeson win MIR again.
14 sailors braved the conditions on Long Lake June 10-11th with up to 30 mph breeze. Kent and Mike didn't even take a third. With the B-25 Joe Byrnes and Dan Keck co-skippering hot on their heels, consistency was key as the B-12 won by 3 points. Full results are below. HERE is a video of the racing shot by a drone.

Kate Klement Named Sailor of Month

Congratulations to the April Sailor of the Month, Kate Klement! Kate is a senior studying Interior Architecture, and she has been on the team since day 1 freshman year. This year, she's played the role of Practice Captain, and has implemented several new measures that have contributed to the team's growth, including a system for recording race day scores, a log to keep track of repairs, and creating several helpful guides for winter workouts. Kate has also been an instrumental member of our qualifying teams this Spring, sailing in A-Divison at both the Women's and Coed Conference Championships, and tomorrow she'll be on the water as part of the Team Race team. Kate is one of the biggest leaders on the team, never fails to have a smile on her face, and is always motivating everyone to work hard on and off the water. Good work Kate!
 — with Kate Klement.

Cullen Barr advances to the Elite Eight

So this may not be sailing news, but how often do you know someone who is playing basketball in the NCAA March Madness tournament. Beyond that how many of those people make it to the Elite Eight. The Xavier Musketeers have won their way into the Elite Eight. Cullen even played in the FSU game. Congrats to Cullen and his team on making it this far in the tournament. You have a proud yacht club behind you cheering you on, even when it busts our brackets.
