Re: Lake sailors: how do you like your wind?
pretty fickle winds on the resevoir I am generaly on.JUst out side of Denver and 5200 above sea level.days go from 2 to 30 in an instant and the only warning is the ripples on the water.Changes directions every 10 minute.it is good and deep though,so dont get the hard chop,just ripples of white caps in rows.The lake is almost center between work and home so it makes for good weekday evening sails.and there are no conditions out side of pouring rain to keep me off if I need a sail.If it rains while I am out I just cruise till they dry out,and if that dont happen it is a great reason to go back the next day and dry em out.The boat is a 23' venture newport cutter.one tuff boat..
