Sailboats on Lake Erie
Description: The photograph shows at least nine small sailboats with triangular sails. The water is relatively calm and the sky appears to be cloudy. A label on the back describes the photograph as the "Sandusky Sailing Club" The club had its first formal meeting on August 4, 1932. The club was founded 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.
