Milwaukee's sailing season kicks off with Veterans Park boat launch

MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- Friday, May 7, was Big Boat Day in Milwaukee. 

It's the start of the sailing season and the Milwaukee Community Sailing Center always starts it off with a boat launch. 

More than two dozen boats set sail from docks at Veterans Park starting at 9 a.m. Friday morning with the help of a 20-ton crane. 

Many of these boats were stored on the sailing center grounds through the winter.

The sailing center was open during the early part of the Covid pandemic last year, following CDC guideliens. 

Now they're picking up where they left off.
