Don your swimsuits
and take the plunge!

(Continued from Page 3)
7-9 a.m. and 11 a.m. to 8 p.m., and
Saturday 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. It is closed
Sundays. Diving has priority Monday
thru Friday, 2 to 3 p.m.
The NCRB pool is open Monday thru
Friday 7-9 a.m., 10 to 12 a.m. (Spring
term only), and 12 to 8 p.m., Saturday 1
to8 p.m., and Sunday 12 to 8p.m.
WHILE THE UNIVERSITY should
certainly be proud of their pools, half
the fun of swimming in the summer is
laying out in the sun (or so I'm told).
Not wishing the residents to spend their
summer without a tan, the city has
three outdoor pools and one indoor/out-
door pool. Admission is $1.25 for an
adult, .$.75 for 17 years and under, and
senior citizens (60 and older), and $2.00
for a family. A season pass can be
bought for $32.00 or less, and allows you
unlimited access to any of the pools.
Generally speaking, the Ann Arbor
Department of Parks and Recreation
does a magnificent job of keepingthe
pools clean and clear. The concrete
surrounding the water is smooth, and
deck chairs, albeit very few, are
provided at all locations for the sun
worshippers among us. If you have a
good-luck chair that you simply cannot
tan without, you may bring that as
well.
OF COURSE, all the pools are wat-
ched by a certified life guard during all
operating hours.
The city of Ann Arbor runs a 24-hour
information number to call pool hours
and general information. That number
is 769-9140.
Most students and University per-
sonnel will be most familiar with the
Fuller pool on Fuller road. If graceful
bodies scantily covered with clingy
materials are not your idea of fun, you
might want to visit one of the other
pools. Nevertheless, Fuller is known for
(among other things) its -large,
spacious sundeck.
Fuller is located at 1519 Fuller road.
The other three pools are: Buhr pool,
2751 Packard; Veterans Pool, 2150
Jackson Road; and Mack Pool, 715
Brooks Street.
Sailing
The spray in your face, the wind at

your back, you battle the wind and
waves to send your craft crashing
through the surf. Sound like an Old
Spice commercial?
Well, it's not the America's Cup, but,
as Mike Carter of the University of
Michigan Sailing Club says, "sailing on
a small like the ones around here is a
real thrill, especially if you like to ace.
If you've never tried it, you're in for a
treat."
That's about the size of it. Whether
you race or just want to head out for a
day of peaceful cruising, there's
nothing like sailing to ease the tension
of urban (and academic) life.
GET YOUR TOPSIDERS ready and
take advantage of some truly fine small
sailing lakes, all of which are within
minutes of downtown Ann Arbor. Por-
tage Lake, Whitmore Lake, and Silver
Lake are all within 12 miles of Central
Campus and are all easily accessible.
T-J Sales on Portage lake offers sail
boat rentals ranging from windsurfers
to 18-foot Interlakes. The rates range
from $8 to $12 for the first hour and $4 to
$6 for each additional hour. They also
offer full-day rates, which are around
$30.
A more economical alternative to
paying hourly rates for your sailing
time is to join the University of
Michigan Sailing Club for $30. This
membership, which runs from May 6 to
Labor Day, allows you unlimited use of
the clubs 14 International 470's, where
they do their sailing, and access to the
clubs many activities.
THE DUES Are used only to maintain
the boats and run a small clubhouse.
The boats are 15 feet long and are
equipped with a mainsail and job. Some
have spinnakers.
The club has approximately 170
members, according to Carter, though
considerably fewer use the boats on a
regular basis. There are no fees to use a
boat, and members are asked only to be
courteous to other members who may
be waiting for one of the 470s.
THE SAILING CLUB gives lessons to
new members on Saturday mornings,
and the active members have access to
the boats after that. For those of you
