I grew up on sailing on Lake Dillon every summer. There were some Fireballs that sailed there. I heard there were some A-Class Cats somewhere around Ft' Collins. Are there any Dingys sailing in Colorado? Pueblo, Grandby? Anywhere?

There was a Johnson 18 class member in Greeley, last word abut ten years ago.

 

No idea where the man sailed it, he came to Midwinters in Florida maybe a couple times.

Ten years ago a Johnson 18?  No dingys. Junior programs at all area lakes and no one sailing small boats?

Ya I know the waters cold but Not One Dingy. Sad. Really Sad

There used to be alot of stuff but those guys grew up and got keelboats.  I know of at least 5 guys that used to race Snipes back in the day but they all baught santanas.  There is an eclectic mix on cherry creek.  A couple of swift solos came out to play last year.  Lightnings have a big class.  Obviously there are a bunch of lasers rubnning around.   I have seen a c15 or 2, but the fireballs are gone unfortunately.  There actually was a huge fleet of scows up in grand lake, but that was a decade ago and I don't think they race anymore.  WIth the h20 heading downward out here maybe we'll see a resergence of the little boats.

I checked and it seems the oddball stuff sails at Boyd lake and Cherry Creek. There are only keel boats at Dillon and Carter. No one travels to each others regattas. When I think about it there is no difference here. The Scotts and Butterflys  sail at Whiterock.  MC's at Ray Hubbard and I travel to sail against other in my Portsmouth fleet.  Guess I just wished it Were different elsewhere.  Who sails at the Gorge?

Big D,

 

I have got it mostly sorted, I was foiling last Fall.  I'll get to some changes next week and then look for some good wind to get back out.
