Outdoor Experience

The 2017 Outdoor Experience event on Bear Lake, Spokane County was a great success with a great turnout. This event is ran each year by St. Luke's Rehab. for persons with disAbilities. This allows persons with disAbilities to try out various outdoor activities like archery, handcycling, kayaking, and of course sailing via FunToSail/AccessToOutdoors accessible sailing program.

The weather was cool (60 degrees) but water was warm and with great wind most of the day from 3-7 knots of wind.
Tandem Island all ready to go...

Hobie Wave
Lunch at with a lot of great people
Takes a little work to get over the chain blocking the way to the primitive launch, but we did it.


Videos coming soon!

St. Luke's next accessible event is the Ski Feast this July 29th (see our calendar for more info) and FunToSail and AccessToOutdoors will be there with our sailboats.

Sail Fest and Family Fun Day

If you did not attend the Sail Fest in association with the Family Fun Day on June 9th you missed a wonderful day to sail and to enjoy all the activities within the park. This event developed rather quickly so was not as well promoted as we would of liked but regardless the attendance was good and I am sure this event will take place every year from this point on event on your calendar for next year on June 8th.
