Yellow Creek State Park will offer the following programs this month.
• Oct. 13, 10 a.m. to 1 p.m., Sailing 101
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 U.S. Sailing-certified instructors will be on hand. After this orientation, each student will have the chance to enjoy a short sail accompanied by an experienced sailor (weather permitting). We will wear PFDs, but to participate, sailors must be capable of swimming 50 yards in clothing and shoes. Meet at the boat rental (main day-use area). Participation is free but is limited to 12 students over the age of 10 years. Registration is required. To register, call the park office at (724) 357-7913.
