Nothing like sailing a mountain lake and where the wind changes so often you can sail through all points of the compass without tacking!
Must make for some interesting gybes... You should read the blog by Carol Anne, called Five O'Clock Somewhere... which is about sailing in New Mexico desert lakes. Don't remember the link but google it and you'll find it.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
