BUFFALO, N.Y. — The Buffalo Harbor Sailing Club is offering boat owners the chance to try their hand at sailboat racing on Lake Erie.

The "Learn to Race" program is designed to give experienced boat owners the opportunity to learn the ropes when it comes to boat racing.

A dockside session will be held at RCR Yachts and Marina on Fuhrmann Boulevard on July 10th at 6 p.m., during which participants will learn the ins and outs of racing and be assigned a mentor.

Participants in the program will then be eligible to join the BHSC for the rest of their racing season.

Pre-registration is required to enter the program. You can find that information here.
