|Sailing Society to conduct “Come Sail With Us” event on May 17|
All sailors and sailing enthusiasts ages 18 and older are invited to join the Johnson County Sailing Society for a special event on Saturday, May 17, at Shawnee Mission Park Lake, 7900 Renner Road, Shawnee and Lenexa.
This free event is called “Come Sail With Us” and will take place beginning at noon at the Shawnee Mission Park Marina on the north side of the lake. Participants should bring a sack lunch and dine with Sailing Society members and the recently-completed Sailing I class. Following lunch, participants will be able to take rides in the personal vessels of society members while they take part in water activities such as mock races or a sailing scavenger hunt. While this is listed as a one-hour event, organizers said it will continue until everyone who has shown an interest has an opportunity to take a ride. This event is dependent favorable good weather.
