The Sail Training Foundation in Sturgeon Bay is gearing up for another summer season of teaching kids how to sail. And for that matter, adults too.
The not-for-profit organization was founded in 1952 and helps students of all ages and abilities master the skills of sailing in a safe, fun environment.
Speaking of environment, the STF's Jesse Brunsvold says parents of kids who take the classes can tell their youngsters are much more in tune with things like wind direction and speed -- even if they're not on the water...
Brunsvold says there's a special buzz around the STF this year because in addition to their existing fleets (Optimist Pram, Flying Junior and Flying Scot), the STF is adding a number of 420 boats, used by many high-profile college sailing teams.
Brunsvold says the 420 is not only "cool looking," it will help advance the STF's program...
The Foundation's instructors are trained and certified by US Sailing, the national governing body of sailing in the United States.
Multiple sessions are held throughout the summer.
