Nestled in the foothills of the Rocky Mountains,
30 miles from Boulder or Ft Collins and 50 miles from Denver

Challenge the race course, or enjoy a peaceful sail on a sunny afternoon.

   Upcoming Events this Spring (Posted: 2014-03-09)

THE SLIPS ARE IN! Racing starts in less than two weeks!

Mark your calendar for the April 9th SAIL meeting at Brooklyns. One of my favorite events in the SAIL seminar season is this last event: a movie of last years sailing highlights produced by the same folks that did our videos for this site, Randy and Lisa Shelton from Colorado Coconuts. Rumor has it this year features footage from the Lady Wilson Cup at Carter Lake. The meeting is at Brooklyns Bar (the one near Mile High Stadium, not the one near the Pepsi Center) in Denver. We usually get there around 6pm to have some pub food, a beer and chat with fellow front range sailors. It's a great time.

If you missed the Racers Meeting March 22nd, you lost out on your chance for anyone to care what you think about the racing schedule. Please keep all muttering and discontent to your self. Better luck next year..

Other rumors floating around:

There may be a sailing gear swap meet at Carter Lake sometime this spring. Start boxing up your partners unused sailing stuff to clear out your house now.

This last one is actually not a rumor but substantiated fact. US Sailing is working a deal that will give your regional sailing organization $10 for everyone that joins US Sailing through the regional sailing organization (which in our case is Rocky Mountain SAIL, If you join both RM SAIL and US Sailing, US Sailing will discount your membership $10 as well. Such a deal. Both these organizations use your dues to promote and enhance sailing.

Don't forget to get your PHRF certificate from Rocky Mountain SAIL before the racing season starts. If you need help with this, let me know.
