Sailing Summer Camp

Tuesday, July 9, 2013

Campers gathered at the dock to Lord Nelson Charters on Lake Lanier in Buford on Tuesday morning. A group of eight young men ran down the pier to the house boat that serves as the offices for the business. Soon the group of campers were practicing tieing knots as they listened to the director, Tom Tilinski, ask questions on what they learned on Monday. After their review session the group made their way to four sunfish sailboats and readied them to take out. Masts went up and rudders were put in the water as groups of two campers made their way out onto the water. For the better part of the morning the four boats, with colorful sails, picked up the wind as the young sailors practiced maneuvering their agile  crafts around the bay of the lake. For the past 16 years, Lord Nelson Charters has been teaching children to sail a boat during their week long sessions on the lake.
