Lake Washington Sailing Club will host open house

Summer almost is here. The thought of outdoor activity has begun dancing in the heads of anyone assigned or confined indoors since last fall.

On April 27, the Lake Washington Sailing Club has an activity that is sure to shake the shut-in cobwebs.

Free sailboat rides will be provided at the Port of West Sacramento as club officials Dave Candey and Dan Clark invite the public to learn more about sailing, experience the “thrills of being on the water,” and partake of no-host food and refreshments.

Running from 10:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m., the open house will feature first-come, first-served rides (weather permitting) as experts chaperone visitors around the facility and answer questions, says club member Tom Locker of Davis.

Locker says a number of Davis residents are involved and that a contingent from Davis High School is working toward a DHS team that will be part of the LWSC.

Lake Washington Sailing Club recently joined with the Pacific Inter-Club Yacht Association, which is made up of individuals and small-boat owners who sail and race.

Through its affiliation with the association, local sailors receive reciprocal privileges at all member facilities — including yacht clubs in San Francisco, Berkeley, Folsom Lake and 100 others.

Licensed by the Port of West Sacramento, the club’s facility is at the south end of Harbor Boulevard.

Member dues are $140 annually. The group requests that members provide 12 hours of sweat equity in the club each year.

For those coming to the open house, “the day is open to everyone — sailors and non-sailors, young and old,” says a club spokesman. “Bring warm, waterproof clothing and a (life jacket). (Jackets) will be provided for those without them.”
