    My favorite experience in a cabin boat is sleeping overnight at anchor. Wake up to bird calls and the mist on the water, fish jumping and morning quiet. Add some hot coffee in the cockpit and that just doesn’t get old.

    We will begin the day with free sailing on the lake. At 6:00 we will rally at a designated anchoring spot and drop anchor.

    Before sunset a dinghy will ferry sailors to shore where we can enjoy a beach campfire and camaraderie. You may eat dinner on your own boat, or bring it ashore.

    Then back to the boats for the night.

    Where we anchor depends on the wind direction. I have several spots in mind and will communicate which one the night before, based on the forecast.

    If you have any doubts or questions about your anchor, please send me an Email. I will work with you so you can be sure you’re prepared.

    Let’s trailer our boats to another body of water and sail together.
    Join Sail Safari -

    Using your boat to actually go somewhere is very different than sailing in circles. Staying at a different anchor every night, seeing the shoreline reveal and pass, being on the same tack for hours and actually navigating, is a profoundly better experience.

    Last year we went to Green Bay Wisconsin. This year's destination will be in response to member feedback.

    If we shorten the course and a slower boat races a shorter course than other boats of the same make and model, the boat that sails the shorter course will be scored behind all boats that sail the longer course. 

    Protests

    A racer intending to file a protest must report their intention to the race committee before the warning signal of the subsequent race, or before the race committee leaves their station for shore if the incident occurred during the final race of the day.
