Sailing club funraising event celebrates anniversary.

Sailing is an integral part of the lake community and Minnesota. Since 1981, Wayzata Sailing has been educating the public and supporting the sailing endeavors of sailors of all abilities. To note: It is one of 35 US Sailing Accredited Community Sailing Centers.

In an effort to offer sailing to everyone interested in learning, Wayzata Sailing hosts the annual Windward Festival, supporting community programs, clinics, training, camps, STEM, adaptive sailing and more—all happening at Wayzata Sailing’s Mike Plant Community Boathouse on Lake Minnetonka.

From 5–10 p.m. June 23, the Wayzata Yacht Club, 1100 Eastman Lane, will host the event, which will feature a silent auction and raffle. Special musical guest Nato Coles & the Blue Diamond Band is on deck, and a shoreside picnic supper (included in the ticket price) will be offered overlooking the beautiful lake. Beverages, including local wine, beer and spirits, will be available along with nonalcoholic sips.

This lakeside festival wouldn’t be complete without free sailboat rides until sunset. —Clare Greeman
