I'll be moving out to Fort Collins this August to do ATC school at Aims Community College for two years. I'll need some company/advice on lakes to sail out there, as well as Division 5 membership.
I checked out Jackson Reservoir in December. It "looks like" a good place to sail (very open pool), but I've lived in Kansas my whole life and am not familiar with the downdrafts and crazy mountain wind patterns that Stephen speaks of.
Anyways, Karl, get a job in Longmont. I don't know anyone in Fort Collins or anywhere near there.
Crazy mountain wind pattern? You assume there is regularity, that would be nice.
Jackson Res is a nice place to sail when the water is high because it isn't as muddy. Try boyd Res in Loveland or make the drive to Lake McConaughy in Nebraska, its only a 3 hour drive from Ft. Collins, and it has great sandy beaches. Division 5 has a race there on the weekend before the 4th of July, and again on Labor day. http://www.hobiefleet61.org
