SUNDAY, MAY 5, 2013 – SAILING 101

12:30 PM – 2:30 PM – Meet at the Boat Rental (Main Day-Use Area)

Co-sponsored by DCNR, Friends of Yellow Creek, and the IUP Sailing Club

Join us to explore the sport and art of sailing on Yellow Creek Lake. This two-hour session begins with a lesson on the parts of the sailboat and introduces future sailors to the basics of wind awareness, sail trim, and points of sail. Three US Sailing Certified instructors will be on hand. After this orientation, in the second hour each student will have the chance to enjoy a short sail accompanied by a experienced sailor (weather permitting). We will wear PFDs, but to participate, sailors must be capable of swimming 50 yards in clothing and shoes. Participation is free but is limited to 12 students over the age of 10 years. Pre-registration required. To register call the Park Office at (724) 357-7913
