The Kamloops & District Yacht Club has a decent facility on Shuswap Lake. We keep the boat moored there, have use of the KDYC wharf, the boat ramp, and can keep the boat onshore at the site so the mast can stay up over the winter. Shuswap Lake has plenty of space for exploration (not extremely wide, but very long lake, with four distinct arms) and has been very popular with houseboaters, but I will admit, the wind can be a little inconsistent/ non-existent during the summer months... at least that was the case this summer! I think Nicola Lake, right beside Merritt, actually has better wind, as does Kamloops Lake. Both those lakes are a little lacking in facilities for launching, mooring and recovering a bigger boat though.
