Title: The Annual ILYA Regatta
Author: Cooke, Reverend Henry
Description: The Interlake Yachting Association Regatta held each July used moorings in the harbor off South Bass Island for its race participants. Apparently, the encroachment of sailors and tourists became a problem for the Cooke family on Gibraltar Island. Rev. Henry Cooke wrote in the Gibraltar Record that "over one hundred yachts, launches, and motor boats thronged the bay. On the whole they were a quiet and very respectable crowd, and many of them actually asked permission to come on the island."
