If you don't want to race, how about participating in the "World Wide Sailing Celebration",
June 19-20, 2020. Sail over to Pelican Bay Marina (Saratoga Springs City Marina) for an over-nighter and return sail on the longest day of the year.
An historical event.
Sailors all over the world will be "practicing safe distancing" on the same day of the year...
the Summer Solstice.
A great entry for your log book.
Awesome overhead view of Pelican Bay Marina.
Don't forget to bring your dock lines.
Was lost...but now it's found!
Recent storm damage to our Cape Dory (tied up at the dock),
tore our starboard side Lewmar 7 winch right off the boat.
It went straight to the bottom.
Scuba Diver Anton got suited up (water was cold) and went to work.
He found sun glasses, a broken fishing rod and reel, and other "stuff" and then the miracle...
when he came up, winch in hand, it was like a weight had been lifted off our shoulders.
A real answer to our prayers. It was so awesome.
Anton, with recovered winch in hand.
Mission Impossible ended as Mission Successful.
New teak combing board can be seen installed on the Cape Dory.
Happy Days. We can now get the Cape Dory back in the game.
Our apologies to all of our wonderful customers who have had to re-schedule,
because of this unfortunate event.
An indicator of the ferocity/strength of the storm that broke the winch off of our Cape Dory,
the Provo Marina's green marker buoy has been blown into the "lee shore" jetty.
We were warned of this wind storm by Windy Lookout App.
Glad we were off the lake, and in our slips, when it hit full strength.
Your help has been requested by the Utah Lake Commission:
"We have a poll posted to our Facebook and Twitter asking if the public is interested in access to live video feeds at all five public marinas at Utah Lake. Please help us to spread the poll to more people by sharing this poll. Below are links to our FB page and Twitter profile, we have pinned the poll to the top, so it should be the first thing you see".
New slots opening up for:
Learn to Sail, and Intermediate Sailing.

We're starting to get requests for another
"Catalina Island Adventure Cruise".
Probably this September - October.
Let us know if you are ready to put your name on the list.
It's way past time to breath in some salty ocean air.
Get some "blue water" time in your log book.
A great view of the Provo Marina from the "Live Lake Cam" feed.
Good visual info on clouds and wind if you want real time sailing information.
Lately, there seems to be a faint tapping noise when I tune in.
Then yesterday I saw the cause of that noise.

Making Utah Lake State Park Visitors Center into a "two holer".
This woodpecker is cruisin' for a hefty citation.
