Hi

Living in southern Oregon Looking for useful info about sailing. Just picked up a 78 Rhodes 22 Turning into some what of a project. Am enjoying every minute of it. Also have a Satillite 14. Learned to sail on the Columbia River About 30 years ago. Now that the kids are out on there own , my wife and I have taken up the sport again. With retirement near we will have more time to trailer sail.

Welcome aboard. The Rhodes 22 is one of my favourite boats, due in no small part to the honesty and humour of their website. I hope to hear mor from you.

Hey ore,

Welcome aboard! Nice to have one my God's country neighbors here. We're currently on the hard (trailer) in Grants Pass where we live. Where abouts are you?

ore,

I've only sailed on Howard, Fern Ridge and Emigrant. You are so close to Lost Creek, I would think that would be worth a try as there was a fair number of sailboats in slips up there last time I was by the marina. I've heard some nice things about a few other mountain lakes in the area. Odell lake, off Hwy 58, and Whiskeytown, west of Redding come to mind. The trouble with some of our beautiful mountain lakes is that the topography of the immediately surrounding areas greatly affect the wind patterns. I've heard that at Lake of the Woods for instance, you can circumnavigate the lake without changing tacks!

Keep in touch, ore. One more post and you can pm.

Doug
