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.
