Hey Chet3 good to hear that you sail on Lanier also!! I took it out for its maiden voyage last Sunday and dropped in at Young Dear Park off exit 17 on 400.. My friend who went with me actually has a boat docked up at Aqualand and that is where I am planning on renting dry storage this summer.. I am planning on going out on the lake again this weekend on Sat and Sunday.. If you would like to meet up to sail and show me a few things on rigging, I will be more than happy to throw you a few bones for your trouble. Oh and we'll have a cooler with us as well haha. My name is Brandon and my cell is 4049939903. Just shoot me a text
Aqualand is the best spot I could find to store my boat with the mast up and near the big water sailing area on Lake Lanier. It is more expensive than rigging at a public boat ramp but much easier and faster to get out on the water. There are two different ramp and storage areas that folks sail their cats from but I line the one closer to the main store.
I have other plans (backpacking) this weekend but will keep in touch for other weekends. I will keep your cell number for the next time.
Another tidbit of info is the windfinder website, it is a great tool for forecasting the wind on the lake days in advance and I have found it to be reasonably accurate. http://www.windfinder.com/weatherforecast/van_pugh_park
I Typically only make the trip up to the lake when there is wind.
