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.
