Fans of sailing like to take to the waves at the area’s many lakes. Shawnee Mission Park Lake is a favorite for some because it doesn’t allow motorboats, which can cause wakes that disrupt the smaller sailboats. On the final day recently of their Sailboat 1 class at Shawnee Mission Park Marina, sailing students Beth Bock (left) of Lenexa and John Colfax of Shawnee operate Sunfish sailboats. The class is given by the Johnson County Sailing Society.
