The Kootenay Lake Sailing Association gave kids a chance to try the sport with an open house at Lakeside Park on Sunday. The three Optimist boats seen in the lower photo — the Secret Garden Toy, Puppa Mike, and Kokanee Camera Co. — all belong to the club and are designed to introduce kids aged six to 14 to the fundamentals of being on the water. This year’s summer camp has already filled up.
