Lake Harriet Yacht Club, a scow sailing and racing club based in Minneapolis, MN, wanted to update their site from one that spoke only to its members to one which was more inclusive and explanatory to attract new sailors. They also wanted something easily updated by volunteers and allows for online membership and event registration payments. We customized a template-based solution from Wildapricot.com creating a calendar feature, webcams from the lake, member-only features and database, plus social media widgets. The site now reflects the vibrancy and diversity of one of the most active racing clubs in the country.
