Ahoy Lake Mead Sailmates,

• Fall Flotilla Sail '10 : October 8-15, 2010 (Including 2nd Annual "Lake Mead Sailing Rally" while transiting the various Lake Mead Basins)

WHAT: The FALL FLOTILLA SAIL is a non-sponsored week long group sail to the five basins of Lake Mead. Overnight in either sheltered coves or one of Lake Mead marina's courtesy docks. Newbie skippers are welcome. We have a group of regular Lake Mead sailors that have sailed together for many years and have a wealth of advise and assistance.

SAILING RALLY COURSE: The Lake Mead Sailing Rally is timed sailing runs ("legs") between various navigation buoys/markers along the transit route of the lake basins. Maps of the four route legs and timing start and finish will be supplied to registered participants.

SAILING RALLY AWARD: Award is the yellow winner's T shirts (ala' Tour de France Bike Race) for best adjusted time for a given leg. A small donations from participating skippers will be appreciated for off setting the cost of the awards.

THE ROAD TO IT IS TO THE RIGHT (SEE SIGN) OF THE EXISTING SLOPE DOWN TO THE CLOSED AND BARRICADED OLD RAMP. OVERFLOW PARKING FOR VEHICLE AND TRAILER IS ON THE SLOPE DOWN TO THE OLD RAMP. Callville Bay Marina is located 12 miles East of Junction RTs 147/167 on the Northshore Scenic Drive, Lake Mead NV.

Mast up boat camping overnight in the Callville Bay camp grounds $10. If available, use the camp sites along the South side for widest spaces in the camp ground. A $50 fine could be assessed for boat camping in the marina parking lot. Only trailer-less vehicles may park down by the ramp. Recommend parking in the Long Term parking lot at the lower level of the parking area. Water, ice, fuel, food, small grocers available at all the marinas.

WHEN: Group Sails usually start out from Callville Bay in the AM on first Sunday. If winds are favorable during the Fall Flotilla Sail, we will conduct the annual Lake Mead Sailing Rally between designated navigation buoys / markers along the transit routes to the various Lake Mead basins.
