NORFOLK -- The long-awaited Community Sailing Center opened Wednesday in downtown Norfolk with nearly two dozen sailboats on the Elizabeth River.

Called Sail Nauticus, the program is designed to teach young people about sailing and maritime sciences.

Proceeds help pay for programs for children who may not otherwise have the chance to have the sailing experience.

There are summer camps and you can become a US sailing certified keelboat sailor.
