Truesdale Lake  

South Salem, New York

Moonlight Regatta – Saturday, September 5th

Come out on the lake during the evening of the (mostly) full moon Saturday September 5, 2020.

Plan to be underway by 7:15 (prep your boats during daylight hours) and arrive mid-lake by 8pm. All ages welcome!

Light up your boats creatively — but not too brightly. Glow sticks, LEDs, lanterns with dimming control, etc.

Hang out as long as you’d like and have a socially distant event.

Meet new neighbors and reacquaint with old ones.

Save the higher powered lights to help you get back to your launch area afterwards. Please refrain from shining bright lights while gathered.

Once people have adjusted to night vision you’d be amazed how well you can see by full moonlight.

Weather dependent — we will still go out with cloud cover but steady rain cancels. Hoping for the same great weather we had for the August event!

Ideas, questions, feedback? Let us all know…
