Sailing in the fall winds
Sailing in Kansas!!
Sailing in Kansas? If you have never tried it, don't laugh. Tuttle Creek Lake provides the sailor with about 17 square miles of water, prevailing southwest winds averaging 12 to 15 knots, bright sunshine, blue skies, and no crowds!
For almost 50 years, sailors in the Manhattan area have been organized in the Blue Valley Yacht Club (BVYC). BVYC has moorings for keel boats, a fenced dinghy park for smaller boats, a private boat ramp, a lift, a hoist for stepping masts, and a picnic shelter.
Numerous young people have begun sailing as a result of their membership in the Kansas State University Sailing Club which is a member of the BVYC. Since promoting sailing is a goal of our club, we gladly provide facilities and assistance to the KSU sailors.
A recent endeavor of the Yacht Club is sponsoring Sea Scout Ship 5074. The Ship was organized in 2000; it is open to both boys and girls of the age 14 through 20. Due to the generosity of local community members, the Ship owns 6 sail boats ranging in size from Sunfish to a Ranger 26. If you are interested in joining the Ship contact one of the Yacht Club Board of Directors for more information.
