Re: Lake Norman

Puddlejockey;

The other Lake I have investigated is Watauga Lake just over the border in TN. It's only a 3 hr drive from CLT. A very active sailing community there and the bonus of being in the mountains where it is usually windy and much cooler in the summer. A mountain house on the water so to speak.

That is one option and the other is the Sound. I am heading out next week to look at marinas along the Palmico. That would be a 4 hr drive but great access to some serious cruising grounds. But agreed, you will not be going every weekend.

Re: Lake Norman

Lake Norman is the largest man-made body of fresh lake located in North California. It is a place where the International Jet Sport Boats Association (IJSBA) tour stops.

Re: Lake Norman

Everything is relative. Lake Norman is nice *compared to anything else nearby* for sure. There is no place to go that even vaguely resembles a waterfront town like Annapolis, the place is overrun with powerboats on weekends, and light+variable winds are the norm. YMMV
