LAKE CHARLES, LA (KPLC) - For nearly a half of century, the Lake Charles Yacht Club has held free sailing lessons during the 1st week of June.  The lessons last a week long and are on a first come first serve basis. 

James Berry is the class instructor, he's captain of the Lake Charles Jr. Sailing team and St. Louis High Sailing Team.  For those who've missed the class, he says, "if you come down here every Wednesday, we've got races and we've got food, if you're interested in sailing, come see, come watch the races, they'll be plenty of people out here, welcome you, we'll even try to get you a boat if we can."

Since the sailboats are provided for you, you will not have to bring your own, however, you will need your own life jacket, proper swim wear and sunscreen.

The LC Yacht Club says that they may even hold a 2nd session of classes in the end of summer.  You can register for those classes at Ship to Shore on Lake Street.  Its a 1st come 1st serve basis, the class will hold 30 to 35 people.
