Back Yard Yacht Builders celebrate the Sailstice at Hart State Park, Georgia

On the afternoon/evening of Friday the 22'nd sailors of the Back Yard Boat Builders met at Hart State Park to become reacquainted and forge new friendships over burgers cooked on the “Barbie”. And later campers listened to the guitar and harmonica played by fellow sailors. Saturday morning lots of kids turned out to learn how to build toy sailboats. They all created little boats that they hand carved. Everyone loved naming their boats and even got to sail them on the lake.
