Re: Will learning to sail on a Cat ruin me forever?
I love PK! I have wonderful memories going all the way back to the mid 70's, boating with my dad on PK and snorkeling the island at Hell's Gate. He'd rent me mask/fins/snorkel at Scuba Point (moment of silence please, it still hurts)...and the first open water dive I did when certified back in 83 was at SP. We frequently rent pontoon boats for dive weekends, camping at the State Park, rafting up in Hells Gate....using the lake from State Park to Governors Cove.
However...for sailing...not so good. The lake is very narrow and winds back upon itself, filling a river canyon. You can sail it, it's just quite a challenge due to the layout and prevailing winds in the area. I don't think I've ever seen a sailboat on the lake...however, I don't normally go to the north end where it's a bit wider, muddy and shallow.
