Grow the Sport…

What a wonderful time we had on our first ever sailing adventure! The BLYC “Grow the Sport” initiative is truly an excellent way for members to learn more about sailing .

This past Friday was a perfect day and Dave Paligo and Bill Collision took us out sailing and provided us with an great overview. They gave us an opportunity to try out different responsibilities on the sailboat and taught us so much !! They were professional , patient and very personable . We didn’t know anything at all about sailing but now we not only know about the mast , jib and boom but also about winches , tiller, sheets , puffs and so much more . We must say that their enthusiasm for sailing is contagious and they knew how to make “newbies” feel comfortable.

We really encourage others in the Club to take advantage of this great opportunity to get out and try their hands at sailing on Buckeye Lake .
