As I’ve mentioned previously, we don’t have a lot of water here in the desert. But we desert dwellers are people of vision. We build ponds. We race boats. (Well, they race boats. I just watch.)

As yacht racing goes, the new pond at the north end of Tingley Beach is a small setting, but the sailors of the Duke City Model Yacht Club were up to to the challenge Saturday afternoon.
