Weekly News Features Wayzata Yacht Club

The Lakeshore Weekly News' David Schueller has a recent article about the Wayzata Yacht Club being featured as one of the Five Great Sailing Towns You May Not Know About: Wayzata is featured as the number 1 place.

"On a sunny day at Wayzata Yacht Club, with Lake Minnetonka sparkling through the sailboat masts, it's easy to see why sailing draws so many locals out onto the water. But how does Wayzata stack up against other sailing towns around the country? Pretty well, thank you. Wayzata recently received some big time national attention among sailors."
