WKYC is proud to be a partner in this weekend's Tall Ships Festival as we celebrate the history of sailing on our Great Lake.  

Beyond Lake Erie, Northeast Ohio is full of many beautiful lakes and rivers, and we want to help you see more of Planet CLE!  So we’re giving away two kayaks and paddles to one lucky person who stops by our booth.

To enter, all you have to do is download our FREE news app.  One you’ve done that, open the app up and one of our team members can show you where to find the entry form!

One lucky winner will receive two Field & Stream Blade Kayaks and paddles.  The winner will be responsible for getting their own PFDs and boat licenses.   You can learn more about the promotion via the official rules below.

Beyond the chance to win the kayaks, we have even more reasons for you to stop by our booth.

You can meet some of your favorite Channel 3 News personalities!  Hollie, Betsy, Maureen, Lynna, Matt, Amani, Will, Tiffany, Jasmine, Austin, and the two Danielles (Wiggins and Serino) are some of our team members who are scheduled to be there.

We’re also partnering with The Foundry, Edgewater Yacht Club, Sailing Inc. and Sailors for the Sea to help you learn more about sailing. We’ll have a sailboat and definition sheets handy to help you learn the difference between port and starboard, bow from stern and other parts of a sailboat as well as how to tie the main nautical knots. 

We’ll also have gutter boat races, giveaways and popcorn from Campbell’s Sweets Factory!  So come on out and stop by and say "Hi!"  We'd love to meet you and give you a chance to win the kayaks.
