Welcome to the ILYA

Welcome to fun and excitement on the water! For over 100 years the Inland Lake Yachting Association (ILYA) has served as a leading organizer and advocate of amateur yacht racing on the inland lakes of the Midwest providing healthy competition for youth and adults. Our world-famous scows are perfect for lake sailing, and tough competition has produced more than our share of international winners in all manner of sailing competition. The ILYA is an active member of US Sailing and serves as the Regional Sailing Association (RSA) for our territory. We are a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization focused on sailing education, safety, top caliber racing and great family fun on the water. We hope you will join us!
