New I-LYA Website Launched

The new I-LYA website was launched today! This new mobile-friendly platform affords us much greater flexibility and a lot of new features that you will hopefully find useful in obtaining information about our organization and upcoming events and activities.

We are appreciative of Commodore Steve Harris’ efforts in making this happen and happy to be able to launch the new site in time for the 2019 boating season. If you find items that are missing or not working properly, please let Steve know and we’ll get it fixed ASAP.


At the I-LYA Spring Meeting held in Westlake, Ohio this past weekend, the 2019 I-LYA Yachtsman of the Year, YRUGL Award, and Commodore’s Awards were presented.

Commodore Dennis Mintus (2001) was awarded the Yachtsman of the Year, Doug Seib (PIBYC), Gail McKee (SSCC), and Connie Miller (PIBYC) were awarded the Commodore’s Awards. Doug also received the Yacht Racing Union of the Great Lakes Trophy for his service to the annual sail regatta and sailing in the Lake Erie Region. Congratulations all!
