Tuesday was possibly the first time a sailboat has ever sat on the shore of carr creek lake..

The act of sailing certainly isn't associated with living in the mountains, but one Eastern Kentucky native is trying to change that.

State Senator Brandon Smith set up a sailing course right here in the middle of the mountains.

The majority of the kids who attended said their favorite part was working together as a team.

Tuesday was the kids first day out on the water, where their sailing skills were put to the test.

The sailing camp provides a positive focus for the kids and gives them a fellowship that they may not have otherwise had.
