Truesdale Lake  

South Salem, New York

Truesdale Full Moon Regatta – Friday, July 23

Come out on the lake to welcome the full moon FRIDAY July 23, 2021.

  • Plan to be underway by 8:15 (prep your boats during daylight hours) and arrive mid-lake by 8:30pm. The moon will rise at 8:32pm but won’t be visible over the eastern treeline until around 9pm.
  • 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. BYO whatever you’d like. Sharing optional but welcomed.
  • 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 can still go out with cloud cover but steady rain cancels. Hoping for the same magical weather we had event last August!
