Scuttlebutt Video of the Week
August 26, 2011

The highlight event of the Scow season is the Inland Lake Yachting Association Championship Regatta, which this year was held August 11-21 on Lake Minnetonka in Deephaven, MN. This year's event saw 26 A Scows, 58 E Scows, 54 C Scows, and 50 MC Scows. Out of all the sailors in these fleets, 30% were 25 or younger.

They say that it's in the interior of the U.S. where Scow sailing is most prevalent, and that some suspect in-breeding is how they promote fleet growth. "Maybe it is wrong to be proud of having this connation," explains 2010 champion Sam Rogers, "but when it comes to racing scows in the ILYA, it truly is a big family and the annual Big Inland is our reunion, the only difference from a normal family is we have 500 crazy uncles instead of a few."

Chris Love was there to document the E Scow events, with daily race highlights and interviews exposing the secrets of Scow country... enjoy:
