Each time Captains DJ McCabe and Byron Hicks lead a sailing lesson, smiles of familiarity cross their faces at the sight of students' widening eyes as the sails catch wind and glide the boat across Lake Monroe. In the silence of the 9,406-acre freshwater lake, sailors can catch glimpses of rare wildlife as the vessel drifts past bathing manatees, soaring herons, and bald eagles snatching each other's toupees. A range of lessons taught by United States Coast Guard captains acquaint aspiring sailors with the trusty rigs, and more advanced students can sign up for certification courses, which follow ASA teaching curriculums to instill safe and steadfast sailing skills. Stationed adjacent to Monroe Harbour Marina, U-Sail of Central Florida keeps a fleet of 14 boats ranging from 13 feet to 30 feet long and lavishes sailors on land with amenities such as abundant parking, wireless Internet, showers, and laundry machines.
Daytona Skydive's experienced instructors accompany fledgling flyers on awe-evoking plunges above scenic Daytona Beach areas, using sturdy Sigma tandem parachute systems. During a one-on-one briefing, instructors take about 10 minutes to detail procedures and characterize the experience through a series of whooshing noises. Students don stylish jump suits before embarking on a 15- to 20-minute plane ride, during which groups soar to heights of up to 14,000 feet.
Four times a week, the Sanford Orlando Kennel Club unleashes its greyhound dogs for live, competitive contests with up to 16 races per day. Spectators can nosh trackside on savory American fare or wander the grandstand or clubhouse between heats while gazing at the tidy midfield and lush foliage framing the track. A full card of simulcast racing compliments the live action. On monitors throughout the club, nationwide greyhound, thoroughbred, and harness races beam in stretch runs and photo finishes. Once a week, amateur poker players assemble at tables overlooking the track, hoping to win a slot at a monthly or regional tournament, or to get the rare opportunity to play cards with a dog.
The Sanford Orlando Kennel Club nurtures their canine athletes long after retirement with the Adopt a Greyhound program. The initiative places dogs into loving homes with the help of four area adoption agencies, who also find school-bus-driver vacancies for retired stock-car drivers.
