Most People Have No Idea You Can Do This One Awesome Activity In West Virginia
Did you know that you can go sailing in West Virginia? What’s more, there’s an organization that teaches people to sail in West Virginia…for free! Check out this awesome opportunity for fun and exercise.
The Sewell Mountain Sailing Association of West Virginia is an organization dedicated to making the art of sailing available to anyone in West Virginia.
Lessons take place on the beautiful Summersville Lake.
Bob and Sandy Richards want more people to experience the joy they feel when they sail a boat.
Bob explains, "Imagine a state with beautiful lakes, clean and clear waters, nearly devoid of power boats and crowds. Can you envision, as I do, a sailboat slipping quietly across those waters? No noise, no real costs, no pollution, adding only its grace to an already wonderful sight."
Bob restores older boats that need work, so that they'll be available for the lessons.
Merchandise purchases help support the organization.
The association also sponsors events that raise funds for the Hospice of Southern West Virginia.
This charity provides help and care for people who are terminally ill.
