It was in the fall of 1968, when those who were to become the thirteen charter members first met.  Without even realizing it, they were participating in what was to become the first event of the club which would come to be known as the Lake Shore Sail Club. 

 

There at the Shores Inn, over a pint or two of bitters, the thirteen charter members agreed on a name and developed a constitution and philosophy which has driven the club to be what it is today: an organization to provide a friendly-family sailing experience with little emphasis on frills, but with extensive opportunities for racing, cruising and socializing.
