Sandusky Sailing Club
Description: Reverse reads: "Ident. Sandusky sailing club. Credit line:Ohio State Dept. of Conservation." A group of sailboats from the Sandusky Sailing Club sail along Lake Erie in Ohio. The club was founded in 1932 when an increase in dock fees at Sandusky's Battery Park Marina brought several sailors together to protest. There were 44 charter members and their dues were set at 25 cents per year. The club is still in existence today and hosts several different kinds of events including regattas, sailing festivals, and special island races. They also offer facilities for sailboats and learning to sail programs for children. View on Ohio Memory.
