Calling all Great Salt Lake Sailors .

If there are any on the forums, i'd like to meet some new sailors at the GSL. I'm at the South Shore Marina. I'm a friendly guy who likes cruising, beers, and conversation. Feel free to post here, or PM me. Cheers.

Re: Calling all Great Salt Lake Sailors .

Welcome to the forum Coldwelder. This is the first mention I've seen of GSL sailors here but I won't be surprised to see them come out of the wood work.

Thank you! I imagine there will not be many members from GSL, as it is a small community and it does have it's own Yacht Club forums. But, all the more reason for me to be here, so I can help share some of the GSL magic with the rest of the sailing world.

@Newt - That's awesome! I love cruising to that marina. What do you sail while on the GSL? And I don't have a lot of welding experience, the username actually refers to a fascinating topic in material physics.

Re: Calling all Great Salt Lake Sailors .

I sail my Compac, which is currently in my driveway getting new rigging. Draft 2.7 feet . I have soloed it down to you guys and back, its a great trip. Right now I am waiting for the first hard frost, to get the saltflies off the water...
It kills a lot of the spiders too )

Yeah I hear you about the flies. In my experience, the brine flies, as well as orb spiders really only significant in July and August. The rest of the year is just awesome sailing.

I sail a C&C Redwing 30 out of South Haven in SW Michigan. I have run into a number of GL sailors on this forum. Where is South Shore Marina

Think you missed the SALT part of Great Salt Lake. He's in Utah.

I had my old Dana 24 at South Shore for about 8 months. Some fun sailing and friendly folk.
