We had a good turnout for the season ending award night for the GLIYC. Other then the fact that it was almost ready to refreeze the lake that night, we had a solid turnout and a great party at the Friday cottage. That being Maureen and Julie's family cottage, thanks for letting us come again this year.
Though we did not get in the amount of racing we all would have probably liked, we none the less got some trophies in to celebrate the accomplishments for the season. And man was it a season to remember. Those that sailed off lake like Mike J had great regattas which propelled Mike into winning the Sweetwater Trophy. A very nice one to be sure.
In our fledgling Nite Fleet we had Drew Zeratsky win the rookie of the year trophy. Drew bought a boat three days before the regatta and three days later was racing the 2013 Nite Nationals. He did pretty good for his first regatta. Needless to say he is getting better every time he hits the boat.
Our newly established youth trophy called the Norton Morgan Trophy or the Morgan Norton was awarded to our top youth sailor. This years winner is Emma Zeratsky. She basically lived iceboating this season as she sailed everything she could all season long. You name it she sailed it, sternsteerers, Nites, Ice Opti's, Skeeters and then some.
