Always felt like sailing wasn’t for you? Lake Minnetonka Sailing School executive director Sam Rogers, who is also a professional racer competing internationally in events like the World Match Race Tour and Grand Prix World and National Championships, begs to differ.
On sailing stereotypes…
You don’t need a captain’s hat, blue blazer, or even a boat. With community education sailing programs on [many local lakes], there are plenty of opportunities to learn.
On small lake sailing…
Local sailing can be exhilarating. Figuring out patterns in shifty wind conditions or how to make the boat sail as fast as possible to the next patch of wind are just a few of the challenges.
