Sailing in Nashville,TN, Percy Priest Lake

Hello I'm a student at Nashville's ITT Tech. I became interested in sailing a while back but never had time for it. I was wondering if there are any members on here sailing on Percy Priest Lake in Nashville that are willing to introduce a newbie to sailboats and sailing as I would love to learn more.

I'm no longer there, but your post brings back some great memories. When I was living in Nashville, 1978, that's when I bought my first sailboat (Catalina 22) and I kept it on Percy Priest. There was a wide mix of boats at that time, sail, power, houseboats, bass boats. I'm glad to see that sailboats still are part of the mix. It was a nice body of water to learn to sail on. I had the pleasure of meeting a sailing couple, Ron and Barbara. And they taught me a lot at the time. I hope there is someone like that there today that will do the same for you. My only piece of advise I can offer is be carefull where you anchor. There is all kinds of stuff at the bottom of that dam and I lost more than one anchor. Good luck and enjoy your new found interest.

Are there any public ramps on the lake capable of launching 22' sailboat? We have friends near Lebanon and I was looking at this lake to take them sailing on next time we make the trip up there.

Yeah, normally evertime i drive out to the "beach" (out by the dam) i see atleast 3-5 sailboats at the least... I have just been driving around and i know there are atleast 2 local boat ramps that I have found, now whether they can launch your boat, im a newbie so would not know lol sorry... I might search around some tonight and see if I can find out though.. I know one of the public boat ramps is out by the bmx track and mountain biking trails ( interest for if you have younger ones )
