Catalina Island
sailin' the outside.

Catalina circumnavigation is a great way to get in some sea hours.

And if you've never been to the west side, add that to your resume too.

Lindon Marina lookin' good

The sailing community and state come together to create something quite extraordinary
at the Lindon Marina.
Flashing illumination on top of 21' high poles,
sure makes you feel like you're safely coming back home after night sailing.
This is a very big deal.
Kudos to all who made this happen. Thanks to Chad for this photo.

If we are sailing, at night, returning from the south end of the lake to Lindon Harbor,
at what distance, in nautical miles, will we first see the new jetty lights?

Great reference tables for your log book.

This is a common math problem for all you navigation geeks,
when using lighthouse beacons and "geographic ranges".

My .02 worth.
 My eye level, above water line, on my boat =  6 ft.
My guess, height of jetty lights above water line = 31 ft.
I should be able to see Lindon jetty lights (in normal conditions),
 approx 9.5 nm out.

So if you're sailing a straight course back to Lindon, at a steady 4 kts boat speed...
It will take you approx 2.38 hours to get back to the marina.
1.9 hours at 5 kts.
1.6 hours at 6 kts.

Time= Distance / speed

A Demerit Badge I earned after getting knocked down, jibing the E Scow.
Which ones have you earned?
Great site Roger.

What does a Ferrari V12 engine and sailing have in common?
Maybe nothing. Maybe something.
