Lake sailors are a friendly and welcoming bunch. Don’t be shy if you haven’t raced before, we can ‘show you the ropes’ in a literal sense. If you have an extra sailboat, bring a friend! Come out and sail!

If you are around the lake and want to watch, spectators are always welcome! Remember sailboats have right of way vs human or electric powered boats. So if you see a racing sailboat heading your way please give way and clear the sailing lane.
