Campers from Camp Leo take to the open seas


Children from Camp Leo got the chance to enjoy sailing on Monday with the help of the Windmill Harbour Yacht Club.

Camp Leo is a special camp for children who have lost their sight. It is run by the Lions Club.

The campers and their helpers were taken out onto the water on Harbor 20s and other keel boats.

"Let's bring them out sailing," said South Carolina Yacht Club Director Dave Wilson. "It just gives the kids a great opportunity to be out on the water and discover what it's like to be out on a boat."

This is the fifth year the South Carolina Yacht Club partnered with Camp Leo to make this day possible.

Officials with the camp said the children always enjoy being on the water.
