SYRACUSE – Steady as she goes this summer for the Wawasee Yacht Club.
The club has been and will continue to be on Lake Wawasee as part of its sailing programs.
The sail season opened May 29, with normal club racing on the weekends. The sail season will continue on through October 3 concluding with the Hoosier Regatta on Lake Wawasee. Otherwise, each weekend, club sailing will begin at 10 a.m. each race day.
The Wawasee Yacht Club is sailing four different fleets, racing sunfish, I-20, E-Scow and Lightning vessels. Fleet captains are listed on the WYC website, wawaseeyachtclub.com.
The WYC is continuing its tradition with the Junior Sail Program, which caters to the future of sailing. Geared to kids ages 8-16, the WYC program is taught by longtime sailing veteran Jeff Herdrich, and runs four weeks starting the week of July 6. The classes are already booked, but a waitlist has been created for potential additions. Feel free to contact Herdrich through the WYC for more information.
