Our Sailing Venue

Important news!!!
Please scroll down to the bottom of this page.

We have two courses with permanent buoys. The lettered buoys are for the start/finish and the numbered ones for windward/leeward and offset marks. The East Course is for when the winds are from the north or south. The South Course is used when the winds are east or west. Temporary (tossable) buoys may to added to square the course to the wind. Be sure to check the course board near the dock before each race.

Each side has a convenient dock for launching and hauling your boat. The East Course has a gazebo for some shade.

Important news!!!
The county has added a Frisbee Golf course around the pond area. We need to be good neighbors and make room for them to play through while we're at the pond. Please park in a single row, no more than a car's length away from our white lines. No more double parking.
