Re: Hello from Park City, Utah

Welcome to the forum, from a fellow Parkite.

You already got a lot of good info. Might add to it:
  • Check parkcitysailing.org - They do summer Laser sailing racing in local lakes (mostly Jordanelle and Dear Creek). Should be lots of fun.
  • I had my 24' Dana on Great Salt Lake for a season. Out on the water the air is clean and fresh, and sailing good. Nice marina and club as noted.
  • Bear Lake is very nice sailing in summer - couple hours away. Lots of sailboats in marinas.
  • Strawberry is also very nice in summer (likely still frozen over for another month or two) and has a small marina. Like an hour drive.
So you know, I have lived here for about 20 years and love the place. My wife and I bought our new boat just over a year ago and are selling our cabin this spring to move onto our boat full time and go cruising. I have cruised in the past, but never more than 3 months at a time, so this will be a big change.

Best Wishes

Our boat draughts 5', six inches less than in the ocean due to the salt content, and we have raced and cruised the southern 2/3 of the lake. As far as keeping water under us, it is not much more difficult than sailing Cape Cod.

Local knowledge is important, but there is a 200 slip marina on the south shore that is full of sailors willing to give it. And for honing sailing skills to be put to use in other locales, there is no equal. Between the complex weather patterns, the salt content and the altitude, the lake can throw about anything at you except ice.

HAL, stop by the marina on racing days and hitch a ride.
+1 , we kept a 27' Catalina in the marina for 15 years, we loved sailing on the lake! We even enjoyed winter sails on sunny days. Great place.
