2017 Summer Tennis Schedule
We're growing our tennis program! We've arranged with the Four Lakes Athletic Club (FLAC) to offer tennis lessons for youth and adults on our courts. We know there are kids interested, as well as adults that might want to improve their game or even try out tennis. So..., we think the time is right to give this a try.
FLAC will handle all the registration and collect fees. LBYC will receive a portion of the revenue. See the schedule and registration form. There is a discount if you register by June 1.
The lessons will be open to LBYC members and people from the community. Questions? Contact FLAC with questions about the classes. Contact Al Haeger or Mary Hudec (our new tennis chairperson) with other questions about tennis.

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!

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.
