I began sailing as a teenager. My family went to a family camp in Michigan for about five years in a row. The camp had a fleet of sailboats consisting of 16' Rebels and 12' Butterflies. Over time my Dad ended up buying two Butterflies .

After we had our own boats to learn to refine our skills, we would usually win the camp regattas. We also entered one-class Butterfly regattas that were held at the regional and national levels. Those competitions proved to be humbling, but were still quite fun.

My Dad now usually sails his boats at Hurshtown Reservoir, near Leo, Indiana. Usually one of more of his children and grandchildren join him.

These are photos of my Dad sailing at Hurshtown Reservoir:
