We race every Wednesday night during the liquid water season in Louisville.. you can sail downstream with ease but upstream can sometimes be challenging due to the current which can be 3-5 knots. River is about a mile wide there, you also have to dodge barge strings which can make you tack when you dont want to. In the summer the flow is much less and current is weaker and its more like a series of lakes. saillouisville.org if you want to see what its like
