30 | April 12, 2018 | The lake forest leader SPORTS LakeForestLeader.com Local youth sailors participate in Italian regatta Brittany Kapa, Sports Editor Six months of planning for the Lake Forest Sailing Club boiled down to nine days of fun in Italy. Those nine days were filled with sailing, making friends and an experience 24 young sailors won’t soon forget. Two of those sailors – Henry Scholz, 13, and Charlie Gish, 12 – are Lake Forest residents and spent the entirety of their spring break in Riva del Garda, Italy, sailing their Optimist boats on Lake Garda in the annual competition. The duo, and group, was led by coaches Will Howard, program director for the Lake Forest Sailing program, and Scott Norman, a co-director for the same program. The group travelled across the Atlantic Ocean to compete in the 36th Annual Lake Garda Meeting from March 29 to April 1, training began March 24 for the young sailors. The regatta was the largest Norman, a sailing supervisor for the city of Lake Forest, had seen during his 20 years, and seven trips, to Italy. “This is something that I had planned on doing before I took the job here,” Norman said.

Those numbers quickly grew. Norman and Howard, dubbed “super coaches” by the parents of the group, Mia Scholz said, led the 24 families through a fun and educational sailing experience. Norman coached the 17 junior-division sailors, including Henry Scholtz and Gish, at Lake Garda. Howard coached the seven younger cadetti sailors, all under 11. Lake Garda hosted 1,400 boats in total, which may be a record the Lake Forest coaches said. “My biggest take away was working with the kids in such a unique environment,” Howard said. “It was really special the group of kids I had.” There were some jitters with the younger sailors. The cadettis were worried about the language barrier and the “rules of the road with sailing,” Howard said, but their minds were quickly put to ease. “You don’t need to speak Russian to know that they’re on starboard,” Howard said. More than a race For Henry Scholz and Gish, the Lake Garda meeting provided a bevy of benefits. “If I was to boil it down, 50 percent of the reason we were there was for sailing,” Norman said. “The other 50 percent was a combination of friendships within the team … self-re- Please see sailing, 27 1742 NWaukeganRoad LAKE FOREST OPEN SUNDAY,APRIL 15TH 1:003:00 PM NEW PRICE! 4Bedrooms |3Full Baths |$624,000 AGEM ON 1.5 HISTORIC ACRES!
