On Saturday, May 14th, the Conestoga Sailing Club will hold its annual Open House. Come join us between 11 am and 4 pm to enjoy all the things Conestoga has to offer.  We’ll offer free sailboat rides to the public and have information available about our Sailing School and summer programs. This is a great opportunity for members (both new and old!), friends, family, and the public to come out to the Sailing Club and enjoy an afternoon at the lake. We’ve got a great Club so let’s show it off a little!

We look forward to seeing you all there.
