Hoofers set sail on Lake Mendota Saturday

Posted: Updated:
MADISON (WKOW) -- Sailing season begins on Lake Mendota this weekend just in time for some beautiful weather.

Hoofer Sailing Club used a crane to launch its boats into the water Saturday afternoon. The club has been at UW-Madison since 1939 and is the second largest inland sailing club in the United States.

Members encourage everyone to try out sailing this season.

"Sailing is a totally interactive activity," says instructor David Jeter. "You're always doing something that's not hard work and such, but it's always engaging. There's always something for your mind, always something for your body."

Jeter says anyone over 18 years old is welcome to join Hoofers.
