A group of Minerva Youth Program sailors catch the wind with their Little Bear sailboat on Minerva Lake during one of the program’s summer sailing days. The sailing program, which has been an important part of the Minerva Youth Program activities for many years, is being directed this year by Phil Wilson of Olmstedville, who originally got the program started. Other sailing instructors include Gus Stewart (and other instructors from Hewitt Lake), Jeff Palka, Bill Brannon, and Jon Ordway. There are about 15 youth program campers who are taking sailing instruction.
