Re: Trying to decide, tell me this....Lake Norman, Kerr Lake, NC sailors
I live in Charlotte and sail from Lake Norman Sailing Club. It is a sail exclusive marina. Pretty minimal facilities, but by far the least expensive on the lake, I pay $137.50 a month for my 23 footer, but I think pricing is by slip size and not length.
It absolutely gets hot and muggy here at times, a bimini is pretty useful to keep the sun off. Sailing is hit and miss a lot of light variable win days but there are plenty of good days out as well. The lake itself gets warm july-september but sailing season is really long.
Can't say anything about Kerr, never been.
Another nice sailing lake in the are is Lake Murray, I've headed down there for weekend trips. Its a really deep lake and big enough to poke around.
