Re: Anyone sailing Lake Pontchartrain?

Joesplace. We have sailed Lake Pontchartrain, and the Gulf Coast, for the last 50 years with a
5' draft. The Mandeville area is the most active area on the Lake for sailing, but Slidell is nice also. Have you checked out Oak Harbor, and the Bayou Liberty Marinas? Both have slips and both are reasonable, and draft is not an issue. A friend sails a 5'6" draft out of Bayou Liberty and has for years. He also rode out "Katrina" there with no problems. Both of these facilities are on the north shore of the lake. Please PM me if you need more details or assistance.
