Hitting the water

» The Great Salt Lake Yacht Club was founded in 1877 by David Lazarus Davis. It is the third oldest yacht club west of the Mississippi River after the San Francisco and Santa Barbara Yacht clubs, according to yachtclub.com.

» Scoring for races is simple: one point is awarded for first place, two points for second place, etc. Points are added to a team’s season score for not participating in a race, so participation is critical.

» There are races planned for every Wednesday evening at 6 p.m. through Sept. 3. Races also are planned for Aug. 10 and 31 as well as Sept. 1 and 28. The race schedule is available at gslyc.org.
