I would recommend Lake Elsinore for sailing. Just checked the wind from weather.com and drove out there since it was supposed to be gusty. When i went there.... it was dead...no wind
.... Still paddled the AI for 1.5hrs. At 3.00pm crosswind from the mountains started blowing. It was greeeeat.
I launched from "Lake Elsinore Marina & RV Resort". $20.00 for all day.
I will go back for sure. 60miles from where I live, still worth the 3 hrs of lake sailing. I also sail from Newport, Long beach & Dana Point harbors.
Next would be Big Bear Lake and Lake Cachuma
