Sat 12-16-2017

(Wahpeton)-- A long-time organization in the Iowa Great Lakes dedicated to teaching sailing is announcing some changes.

The Okoboji Yacht Club Sailing School has been re-branded and is now known as the Okoboji Sailing Center.

Officials with the organization say the change was made to ensure that access to West Lake Okoboji and the high quality sailing and water safety instruction is available to everyone.

The organization has offered sailing instruction since it's establishment in 1973.

Randy Gould, Program Director at the Okoboji Sailing School, says they'll also be offering a broader range of classes this year for both competitive and recreational sailors. He says they're hoping to partner with Lakeside Lab, the YMCA and area school districts to expand the outreach of their programs. 

Class registration is now underway. You can sign up and find more information at
