Re: HELP: Being relocated to Las Vegas?

Well, now that the America's Cup is over and those boats have no future in any competitive sport...You broker a deal and get them moved to Vegas, have one of the casinos put on daily races with them and get yourself a crew spot!

wtf, they've got replicas of everything else in Vegas, why shouldn't they have AC races there every day?

rbrasi I live in the las vegas area, but i've never sailed here. I do know that the nevada yacht club is pretty active on lake mead. Look them up on meetup. For me, marina del rey is 4 hours door to door during non-peak traffic and has a very active racing community. That is where I race. I've been to king harbor and long beach and they are nice, too.

Re: HELP: Being relocated to Las Vegas?

All the harbors in So Cal have active racing fleets. from Las Vegas, newport beach is the closest, Dana point and long beach are only a little further. to get to other harbors you will have to go thru LA traffic, its is easy to get on as crew as most boats are looking for experienced people. Long beach is the windiest. the further south you go the less wind. Long beach is a big harbor with a break water and a few big ships. Newport is a very nice small bay with homes on the water and never a place to park your car. they race the small one design in the bay and PHRF and others in the ocean. Dana point is a small harbor with little place to sail in the bay but is is only a very short sail to the start line in the ocean and no big ship traffic and very smooth lighter winds. Dana point is the laziest and most relaxed harbor, the furthest from LA with plenty of car parking.

SoCal...Its active all along the coast...Newport Beach, San Diego, Dana Point, Catalina, Long Beach, San Pedro, Oceanside, Los Angeles, Santa Barbara, etc...NB and SD seem to be the hubs for racing if you are interested in that.

Re: HELP: Being relocated to Las Vegas?

Re: HELP: Being relocated to Las Vegas?

You could do SoCal, it's 4.5 hrs to Newport Beach. Lake Mead is very close about 30/45 minutes. I'd also check Lake Havasu better water levels than Mead.
