Re: CV-19 and sailing.

Water level of Lake Pleasant is very low, and warm. Generally, they start it filling in early winter. The weather in the mornings and evenings is wonderful, with mid-day temps. still in the low hundreds. The one Regional Park ramp (south) is still the only one open, but it's not crowded most weekday...

Re: CV-19 and sailing.

Why are some recent posting dates showing as 2014? Our last sail on our lake, Lake Pleasant, AZ, here in "opposite world" was in April. The only ramp open, under Covid-19 operational guidelines, was a complete zoo. Has anyone else had this experience? While somewhat entertaining for anyone with rudi...

Re: Mainsail rigging

Sorry this is so late in coming John, but thanks for the tip on including photos in posts. This is how I rig the Cunningham (green 1/4 inch line on our boat): The running end leads on the starboard side of the eye down from the sail tack eye, then through the block at the base of the mast on the sta...

Re: End of the season.

I'm really sorry, but I don't know what you are all talking about. It's barely the beginning of the season...if you're in ARIZONA! The skies are blue. The weather is perfect. This year all our big lakes (Pleasant, Roosevelt, Havasu) water levels are highest in several years. Even Lake Powell, a day ...

light breezes

I've not noticed much enthusiasm (or anything else) for the Sage 17 on this Forum lately. So here goes: I am loving this boat! I just came home from multi- days single handing on Lake Pleasant in everything from moderate gusty winds to dead calm, at the end of an abbreviated season on my part. So I ...

Conditions at Lake Powell

We just returned from a trip to Lake Powell, having daydreamed over everyone else's pics and videos for some time now. As always, the scenery and surroundings were uniquely beautiful and inspiring, but trailer sailors be advised: The lake is extremely low at present (down 130 feet). With the upstrea...

Re: Winter Messabout, Lake Pleasant AZ, 2019

I'll be recovering from surgery, but am hoping to be up for this event. I'll know for sure in early February. With regard to the possible RAID event, I have a good location in mind, where I've enjoyed boat camping several times. It's a sheltered anchorage in a fairly roomy little bay about 2.5 miles...

Re: Pocket Yacht palooza

Good to hear Sal. Been kind of a crazy year all around. Can't get enough "cockpit time" in these wonderful boats. Keep up the good work, and we're all with 'ya.

Re: Lapper jib

There are some differences in sailing a 15 and a 17, but you'd enjoy being out on the water with a bigger headsail. We have a Sage 17 that we sail under most conditions (light to moderate winds) with a 150% genoa. It makes a big difference, and the boat becomes a much more lively performer on all po...
