HOW TO FOLLOW 2023 E SCOW NATIONALS

THE LATEST 2023 NATIONALS NEWS

The Regatta Celebration Keeps Sailing Beyond the Winner’s Circle. We’ve got an abundance of photos, tales to share, and videos to post, and it’s going to take us a few days to capture all the magic. Stay tuned, keep checking our website, Facebook, and Instagram throughout the week for more updates

We’d Like To Thank Our Sponsor – Summerset Marine Contractors, Lifetime Piers, & D.L. Anderson Co.

Summerset Marine, D.L. Anderson, & Lifetime Piers Website

Summerset Marine Construction has been in business since 1990, specializing in lifts, piers, and service. Summerset Marine offers Lifetime Piers, including Minimalist, Classic, and the All Seasons pier, that stay in the water year-round.

Summerset Marine Construction and D.L. Anderson Company know that living on the water opens up a great deal of experiences to enjoy. Having a pier is essential to get the most enjoyment from your waterfront property, but not everyone’s needs are the same. While some property owners prefer to soak up the sun and get in a little fishing, others participate in sailing or other water sports requiring vastly different piers. A pier and lift designed to fit every individual’s needs is what Summerset Marine Construction and D.L. Anderson Company can do for you with our product offerings.

Our Lifetime Piers decking is as unique as it is strong. We source our fabrication materials from a Midwest company that repurposes post-consumer plastics to create nearly fade-proof and weather-withstanding decking. Designed to look like wood, our piers come with all the beauty and none of the hassle of a traditional wood pier.

In Memory of Art Stamm


We want to express our gratitude to Evie Stamm Cooper for her generous contribution in memory of her father, Art Stamm, in support of the 2023 E Scow Nationals.

My father, Arthur Stamm, the first fiberglass sailboat manufacturer in the Inlands, manufactured a pointed-nose E-Scow that was sailed in the ILYA Regatta in 1964. My dad loved his friends at Mendota. Sailing was his passion and our family life, and he had many friends on Mendota.

T2PTV Commentators Announced – Ashley Love & Will Huerth


Prepare to embark on a commentary journey like no other with T2PTV’s Ashley Love, joined by Will Huerth for the 2023 E Scow Nationals. Ashley and Will’s passion and experience with the E Scow class will add a special touch to the daily video coverage. We’d like to take this opportunity to acknowledge and thank Racine Riverside Marine and River’s End Marina for their sponsorship.

ASHLEY LOVE
Ashley Love, Editor in Chief of T2PTV, is producing and commentating the event with Kristen Berry primarily filming and editing the same-day coverage. Look for highlight coverage each evening on T2PTV: Sailing on Demand’s YouTube channel and on this website, escow100.org.  Love has been producing sailing coverage for over 15 years, but her history with E-Scows goes back even farther. She was fortunate enough to race for several years with her dad, Dr. Douglas Love, on his 4th or 5th E, “Hang Ten”. Based out of the Barnegat Bay in New Jersey, Doug Love’s involvement in the class dates back to the 1960s having made many contributions to the class including being at the forefront of the transition to the asymmetrical spinnaker.

“I’ve filmed a lot of events all over the world, but the E-Scows class will always have a soft spot in my heart. Scows are how my parents spent their time early in their marriage and is how I bonded with my dad as a young sailor. He gave me the love for this sport, which lead to my career. I’m very much looking forward to being a part of this historic and prestigious event and to work with the class, the Mendota Yacht Club and the rest of the media team!”
Ashley Love

It is a true honor and privilege to be covering the 100th Annual E Scow National Championship on Lake Mendota. I’ve been sailing in this class since I was 10 and I never thought I’d get the opportunity to commentate such a historic event. Can’t wait to see 120 of these 28ft monsters rip down wind at 20+ kts. Whatevers gonna happen… it’s gonna happen out there. See ya on the water.
