We stumbled across the Peterborough Yacht Club on Clear Lake. We joined, fell in love with sailing, and spent our summers learning to sail dinghies.

The club provided Albacores, Lasers and Optis for use by club members. It was a small and gusty lake, we spent as much time in the water as we did in the boats. Some fantastic members dedicated to dinghy sailing, including an older talented couple that were pro Albacore sailors, Yanna and Jiri Spirk. Their son, Richard Spirk, also was amazing to watch on a Laser in all kinds of weather.
